I also just noticed the answer for 26 is actually the answer for the question after that one, which isn't posted so here: Compare and contrast the composition of blood plasma and glomerular filtrate.

Good notes though.

For #26 Substances such as hydrogen and potassium ions move either from the blood of the peritubular capillaries through the tubular cells or from the tubular cells into the filtrate to be disposed as urine. It is a device for controlling blood pH.

Primary site of tubular reabsorption: proximal convoluted tubule.
Secondarily important site of tubular reabsorption: distal convoluted tubule.
Structure that conveys the processed filtrate (urine) to the renal pelvis: collecting duct.

There are SOO many typos on this thing. Micturition...not micturation. #19-21 questions and answers do not line up. No correct answer available for #26. Number 19 and 20 should be Convoluted --- not convolated. too many mistakes in this thing

The answer to #26 is the answer to another question. Otherwise, GREAT study notes!

Thank you soooo much, added bonus was that the pictures were included on this exercise.

emptying the bladder or urinating is micturition, not micturation.
