Compare this data with your baseline data. How did increasing the afferent arteriole radius affect glomerular filtration rate? Increasing afferent ateriole radius increased glomerular filtration rate. 2. Under these conditions, does the fluid flow through the nephron? No. 3. What is the glomerular filtration rate? 0 4. How does it compare to your baseline data, and why? Glomerular filtration rate in baseline data was 124.99 which show functional glomeruli. The data is supportive of the concept that reducing the size of the afferent radius will definitely affect the glomerular filtration functions. A very small amount of blood can pass through the capillaries, which leaves insufficient fluid to be filtered. 5. How did increasing the efferent radius affect glomerular filtration rate?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
