Although the speed of blood flow in an arteriole is greater than speed of blood flow in a capillary, blood does not accumulate in the arterioles.
Explain why.

Due to the speed being higher it prevents any back flow of blood because they'll be a high pressure caused by the arteriole contracting and constricting to regulate the blood. I'm unsure slightly on this one? Any help?
