Arteries have the highest blood pressure out of the three because arteries carry oxygen rich cells which then loses some of its pressure as it goes further away from the heart.

(Also because it is further away from the heart.

What blood pressure is the force of blood on the?

The blood pressure is the pressure in the arteries created by the large quantity of blood circulating in them. The number on the top is the systolic blood pressure and the number on the bottom is the diastolic blood pressure. The systolic BP is the pressure in the arteries right when the blood is pumped out of the heart, therefore the pressure is bigger. The diastolic BP is the pressure in the arteries after the blood has been pumped out and before the next heart contraction. At this moment, the heart is relaxed and the pressure is much lower.
