Question

The net pressure gradient that causes the fluid to filter out of the glomeruli into the capsule is:
  1. 50 mm Hg
  2. 75 mm Hg
  3. 30 mm Hg
  4. 20 mm Hg


Solution

The correct option is D 20 mm Hg
Kidneys help in the formation of urine, from the blood flowing through glomerular capillaries. About 20% of plasma fluid filters out into the Bowmans capsule through a thin glomerular-capsular membrane due to a net or effective filtration of about 10 to 15 mm Hg. So, the nearest option is 20 mm Hg.
