  • Hello Peehu how was your day in school
  • Hi mom. It was very good. Today I learned so many things in the bio class. Ma’am told us about Human Excretory System 
  • The biological process involved in the removal of harmful metabolic waste is known as excretion. Human Excretory System consists of a pair of kidney, a pair of ureter, urinary bladder and urethra.. But the most interesting topic that Ma’am taught us today was nephron.
  • what do you understand by Human Excretory System 
  • Nephron is the structural and functional unit of kidney. It consist of Bowman's capsule, Glomerulus (Tuft of capillaries) present in the Bowman's capsule , PCT or ascending limb, Loop of Henle, DCT or descending limb and collecting duct
  • What do you know about nephron
  • The main function of nephron is to filter blood through the process of filtration,selective reabsorption and secretion
  • So, Peehu tell me what is the function of nephron 
  •  Ultra Filtration takes place in the glomerulus of the Bowman's capsule under high osmotic pressure .Selective Re absorption- From glomerular filtrate, some substances like water, salts, sugars, Amino acids are selectively reabsorbed. Tubular secretion - Urine is formed and secreted via collecting duct into the ureter
  • hmm... Very interesting
  • 
  • Bravo !! It is good that you are attentive in your classes
