Type A Multiple Choice: ONE out of the five possible choices is correct.
1. Considering that the net filtration pressure over the capillary wall changes from 10 mmHg out to 10
mmHg in from the arteriolar to the venous side, roughly what percentage of fluid returns to the blood
stream by the lymphatic vessels?
The filtration pressure numbers have no impact on the answer of the question.
2. Erythropoiesis is the production of:
a) All blood cells
e) Red blood cells
3. Hydrostatic pressure tends to let fluid ___ the capillaries, whereas colloidal osmotic pressure tends to
let fluid ____ the capillaries.
a) Into, into
b) Into, out of
c) Out of, out of
d) Out of, into
e) The pressures are always at equilibrium
4. Two solutions of equal volume are separated by a membrane which is permeable to small ions and
water. Solution A contains roughly 10 g of albumin, and solution B contains 10 g of fibrinogen. Over
time, which solution will accumulate a larger volume of water due to osmotic pressure?
a) Solution B.
b) Neither, the net osmotic pressure is 0.
c) Solution A.
d) Neither, osmosis is prevented over this membrane.
e) Neither, osmotic pressure is only relevant over time for penetrating solutes. Type B Multiple Choice: More than one choice may be correct. Select the correct combination of
