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?
