The kidneys remove waste products like excess salts, toxins and urea (a nitrogenous based compound that is produced after deamination) from the blood and they balance water and the body fluids. The kidneys get their blood from the aorta through the renal arteries and it passes through a structure in it called nephrons which extracts waste from
It is then secreted within the small intestine where it helps to break down ethanol, fats and other acidic wastes including ammonia, into harmless substances. Large Intestine-The large intestine collects waste from throughout the body. It extracts any remaining usable water and then removes solid waste. At about 5 feet long, it transports the wastes through the tubes to be excreted. Skin-Skin extracts sweat through sweat glands throughout the body.
Five ways water is used in the body - Your cells need water to live and survive. - Water helps remove dangerous toxins from the body. - You need water to keep your metabolism moving properly (which helps you burn calories) - IF you don't have enough water, your blood pressure can drop suddenly - Water keeps your skin hydrated - Water allows you to
Cardiovascular system has three main functions: Transport of nutrients, oxygen and hormones to cells throughout our body and removal of metabolic wastes such as (carbon dioxide and nitrogenous wastes). Protections of the human body by while blood cells, antibodies and complement proteins that circulate in the blood and defend our body against foreign microbes and toxic. Clotting mechanisms are also present that protect the human body from blood loss after injuries. Regulation of body temperature, fluid pH and water content of
Produces essential proteins and clotting factors for the blood and regulates metabolism and cholesterol. Gall Bladder – Stores bile secreted by liver. Bile is used to help dissolve fats in the small intestine. Pancreas – Functions both as an exocrine gland and an endocrine gland. Exocrine portion secretes digestive enzymes carried to the duodenum.
The different kinds of Aspirin tablets are: * Enteric Coated Tablets * Capsules * Regular Tablets * Dissolving Tablets. Each tablet will be dissolves in both Water and Hydrochloric Acid (representing saliva and stomach acid respectively). Hypothesis The Enteric Coated tablet will remain undissolved in both water and Hydrochloric Acid as the coating is designed to remain undissolved until reaching the small intestine. The dissolving tablet will dissolve the fastest in both water and Hydrochloric Acid as this tablet is designed to quickly dissolve in liquid. The capsule will soften but not completely dissolve in the water, however will dissolve in the Hydrochloric Acid.
1. Does the body adjust its pH by glomerular filtration, tubular reabsorption or tubular secretion? Explain how it does so. Body adjust its pH by tubular secretion, because hydrogen ions generated by the dissociation分离 of the carbonic acid碳酸 are secreted by sodium-linked counter transport in exchange for Na+ in the tubular fluid and then into the bloodstream, where they help prevent changes in plasma pH. 酸离子是由于碳酸分离而生成的，碳酸是由于sodium-linked counter 跟钠交换得来的。 2.
The CFTR protein allows chloride ions to exit mucus producing cells and water molecules to follow the chloride ions out. When the process is normal, mucus is of normal consistency. However, when chloride ions are trapped and water cannot escape, mucus becomes thick and sticky. The result is the disease we call cystic
1.1 Renal function/failure Most people know that a major function of the kidneys is to remove waste products and excess fluid from the body. These waste products and excess fluids are removed through the urine. The production of urine involves highly complex steps of excretion and re-absorption. This process is necessary to maintain a stable balance of body chemicals. The critical regulation of the body’s salt, potassium and acid content is performed by the kidneys.
