Dear Student,

When there is a injury,  certain factors present in the blood gets activated so that they may produce the clot, thus stopping the wastage of blood. This process of formation of clot that stops bleeding is called blood clotting.

 The process by which the soluble protein fibrinogen in blood plasma is converted to insoluble fibrin, thus preventing blood loss through cuts, etc. Vitamin K is required for synthesis of the clotting proteins, and deficiency is characterized by excessive bleeding.
