Answer to Question #174090 in Biology for Cecilia J

Question #174090

At the venous end of a capillary, consider these values:

Within the capillary: Hydrostatic Pressure (HPc) = 18 mm Hg while the Colloid Osmotic Pressure (OPc) = 28 mm Hg

In the interstitial fluid: Hydrostatic Pressure (HPif) = 0 mm Hg while the Colloid Osmotic Pressure (OPif) = 1 mm Hg.

  • What is the net hydrostatic pressure?
  • What is the net colloid osmotic pressure?
  • What is the net filtration pressure (NFP)?
  • Does fluid move into or out of the capillary?
  • For full credit, show all calculations.
