What value of glomerular capillary oncotic pressure would glomerular filtration stop? Use the values below to answer the following question. Glomerular capillary = 47 mm Hg hydrostatic pressure Bowman's space = 10 mm Hg hydrostatic pressure Bowman's space = 0 mm Hg oncotic pressure.
A. 57 mm Hg B. 47 mm Hg C. 37 mm Hg D. 10 mm Hg E. 0 mm Hg
Glomerular filtration will stop when the net ultrafiltration pressure across the glomerular capillary is zero; that is, when the force that favors filtration (47 mm Hg) exactly equals the forces that oppose filtration (10 mm Hg + 37 mm Hg).
