    In 24 h, total glomerular filtrate formed in human kidney is

    A) 1.7 L

    B) 7 L

    C) 17 L

    D) 170 L

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    About 120 mL glomerular filtrate is produced per minute,
    i.e. \[120\times 1440\min =172800\,ml\]

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.
