    In the laminar flow, the adjacent layers do not cross to each other and move along the well defined path whereas in turbulent flow, the adjacent layers cross to each other and do not move along the well defined path.
    The blood circulated in arteries of a human body is very slow and steady and blood has some viscosity. Thus it is a laminar flow.
