A set if two micro-electro mechanical system (MEMS) based reciprocating pumps are placed inside the human body to replicate a part of the function of hear. Two such pumps which are out of phase by pi/2 controls the flow pressures generated by the pumps has a sinusoidal profile with respect to time with a common time period of 1 ms. Once of the pump generates a pressure amplitude of 0.2 MPA.

The internal carotid arterial walls are soft tissues which can be considered to be a hyper-elastic material that can hear a maximum pressure difference of (6L) MPa (where, L is the length of the carotid artery) just before rupturing. What is the maximum allowed pressure amplitude of the second reciprocating pump to avoid rupturing ?
