Fluid Movement across the Capillary Wall - Part 2
Movement of fluid across the capillary wall is governed by hydrostatic pressure differences as well as osmotic pressure differences across the capillary wall. Test your basic knowledge of this process by taking this simple quiz.
(1)   When considering the forces that govern fluid movement across the capillary wall, which of the following is/are correct?
(2)   Which of the following is/are among the forces that govern fluid movement across the capillary wall?
(3)   In a typical capillary, the net filtration pressure is positive throughout the entire length of the capillary.
(4)   In the kidney glomerular capillaries, the net filtration pressure is positive throughout the entire length of the glomerular capillary.
(5)   Which of the following forces favor(s) fluid movement out of the capillary lumen and into the surrounding interstitial fluid (i.e., fluid filtration out of the capillary)?
