Match the vessel characteristic on the left with the appropriatevessel type on the right (each vessel type will be used more thanonce, only 1 BEST answer for each characteristic).

Substance exchange with the tissues takes place in thesevessels

These vessels are the main site of vascular resistance

Active hyperemia directly affects the diameter of thesevessels

Very low resistance vessels that act as a pressure-reservoir due totheir elasticity

These vessels contain one-way valves throughout their length

The walls of these vessels are composed of a single layer ofendothelial cells and a thin basement membrane

Very low resistance vessels that serve as a volume reservoir due totheir compliance

The velocity of blood flow is the least in these vessels

These vessels carry blood back to the heart

Blood flow in these vessels is directly aided by the skeletalmuscle pump

The total cross-sectional area of this type of vessel(cross-sectional area of all these vessels combined) exceeds thetotal cross-sectional area of every other type of bloodvessel

These are the first vessels that carry blood away from theheart
