  Side A   Side B
1
hydrophilic
 
A molecule that is polar and  attracts water and easily dissolves in water.
2
hydrophobic
 
molecule that don't dissolve in water because they are nonpolar (lipids)
3
Phospholipid
 
part of plasma membrane with hydrophilic heads and hydrophobic tails facing inward, sandwich...
4
ICF2
 
2/3 of our fulids in ICF. chemical reactions for metabolism happen here, overall negative charge....
5
ECF
 
all body fluid outside of the cells. 1/3 of our fluid. Major molecules: **NA+**, NACO3-, Cl-
6
interstital fluid
 
Fluid outside of the 80% of our ECF is interstitial. 
7
Hydrostatic pressure
 
forces fluid out of a space due to pressure. 
8
osmotic pressure
 
fluid flows into a space via osmosis (presence of solutes)
9
osmosis
 
movement of water from an area of lower solute concentration to an area of higher concentration
10
Osmolarity
 
unit of concentration, measured in Osmoles per Liter (think moles from chemistry)
11
water balance
 
daily water intake must equal output. water gain vs. water loss.
12
water gain
 
in hypothalmus monitor ECF osmolarity and when it gets too high, it stimulates the cortex to...
13
water loss
 
negative feedback loop between hypothalmus and kidneys. kidneys reabsorb water if too much...
14
sensible/insensible water loss
 
sensible - noticeable, sweat, urine, feces, etc.
insensible - light perspiration, and respiration.
