• # question_answer In 24 h, total glomerular filtrate formed in human kidney is A) 1.7 L B) 7 L C) 17 L D) 170 L

 About 120 mL glomerular filtrate is produced per minute, i.e. $120\times 1440\min =172800\,ml$ approximately 170 L filtrate is produced in 24 h. The blood pressure in glomerular capillaries becomes very high, so that there is continuous process of ultrafiltration. Glomerular filtrate contains a large amount of water and there dissolved substances such as urea, uric acid, creatinine, amino acids, glucose, sodium, potassium, vitamins, etc.
