Why At the arteriole end of the capillary more fluid leaves the capillary than enters as a result of differences in what?
The reason fluid leaves at the arterial end of the capillary bed and returns to the venous end of the capillary bed is the difference in hydrostatic pressure. This means the pressure against the inside of the vessel is greater that the pressure on the outside of the vessel on the arterial end and vice-versa on the venous end. Also, loss of water at the arterial end very slightly raises the oncotic pressure on the venous end, although to what degree this adds to the return of fluid to the vasculature is unknown.

1. Study the diagram of a chicken wing. Use the diagram to help you locate certain muscular and skeletal structures. 2. Thorough washing of hands, countertop and instruments have to be done at the end to prevent salmonella contamination. 3. Your teacher will give you a chicken wing. Rinse it well …with cool water, dry it with paper towels, and place it in a dissecting tray. 4. Examine the wing at the point where it was removed from the body. Depending on the way the wing is cut, you might see cartilage and bone marrow. 5. Carefully extend the wing to find out how many major parts it has. 6. Using the scissors, cut down the middle of the skin, starting at the top end of the upper wing. Try not to cut through the muscles below the skin. Do this by piercing the skin and then slipping the scissors between the skin layer and the muscle. Cut until you reach the shoulder joint. (See figure 1, Cut 1.) Only cut through the skin. CAUTION: Cut away from your body and your classmates. 7. Cut down the sides of the skin to make a T-shaped cut. Start at the first cut and cut away from it in both directions. Peel the skin and cut to loosen it. (Note: the chicken skin can be very difficult to remove. Take your time peeling it back so as not to damage the tissues underlying it.) (See Figure 2, Cut 2.) 8. Look for yellowish tissue clumped together beneath the skin. This is fat tissue, made of fat cells. 9. Examine the muscles, the bundles of pink tissue around the bones. Find the two groups of muscles in the upper arm. Hold the arm down at the shoulder, and alternately pull on each muscle group. Observe what happens on each muscle group. Observe what happens. Show teacher that you did this. Teacher initials: _____________10. Find the two groups of muscles in the lower arm. Hold down the arm at the elbow, and alternately pull on each muscle group. 11.

Capillaries are the smallest branches of the blood vessel system in any warmblooded animal. (The same name, "capillary," is also used for the smallest branches of any system of tubes that bring fluid from one large reservoir to multiple smaller destinations.) The capillaries join the arteriole s …(the next smallest branches of the blood vessel system), which bring blood from the heart to the tissues of the body, and the venules (the next larger branches of the blood vessel system), which carry the blood back to the heart from the various tissues of the body. It is in the capillaries that oxygen, nutrients, proteins, and fluid are exchanged from the blood to the tissue cells and carbon dioxide, toxins, metabolites, and other waste materials are brought from the tissue cells to the blood, where they are then carried ultimately either to the lungs (where carbon dioxide is exhaled), the liver (where toxins are broken down and excreted into the bowel), or the kidneys (where waste products are excreted into the urine).

Capillaries are tiny blood vessels connecting the small arteries(arterioles) to the small veins (venules). The blood vessels carryoxygen and nutrients to all the individual cells in the body. Thehuman capillary system is made up of arteries with their terminalbranches (arterioles) and veins plus the…ir tributaries (venules).Capillaries are the blood vessels that lead from the arterioles tothe individual cells, and from the cells back to the venules. Capillaries have very thin walls with holes in them, so fluid andsmall molecules like sugar and waste can move in and out. This isthe site where the actual exchange of water, oxygen, carbondioxide, and nutrients occurs. There are many important aspects of the human body. Capillaries arejust as important as any other part in the body. They are only onecell thick, but they carry oxygen and blood around the human body,and remove carbon dioxide as well. (MORE)
Capillaries are the smallest blood vessels in the human body. Theirmain function is to assist with the exchange of water, oxygen,carbon dioxide, and many nutrients.
lymphatic capillaries are very permeable. Lymphatic capillaries have valves that keep fluid from flowing backward. The blood capillaries are regulated by smooth muscle. Lymphatic capillaries are also a but larger than blood capillaries.
exchange of fluid that occurs across the capillary membrane between the blood and the interstitial fluid. This fluid movement is controlled by the capillary blood pressure, the interstitial fluid pressure and the colloid osmotic pressure of the plasma. Low blood pressure results in fluid moving from… the interstitial space into the circulation helping to restore blood volume and blood pressure. (MORE)
Lymph capillaries resemble blood capillaries somewhat, but differ in important ways. Whereas a blood capillary has an arterial and a venous end, a lymph capillary has no arterial end. Instead, each lymph capillary originates as a closed tube. Lymph capillaries also have a larger and more irregula…r lumen (inner space) than blood capillaries and are more permeable. The wall of a lymph capillary is constructed of endothelial cells (which are attached to Anchoring Filaments attaching to surrounding tissue) that overlap one another.(Do not overlap in blood capillaries). When fluid outside the capillary pushes against the overlapping cells, they swing slightly inward--like a swinging door that moves in only one direction. Fluid inside the capillary cannot flow out through these openings. When pressure is greater inside the lymphatic capillary, the cells adhere more closely, and lymph cannot escape back into interstitial fluid. The pressure is relieved as lymph moves further down the lymphatic capillary. \nA lymph capillary serves as a one-way passage for tissue fluids, while the blood capillary serves as a place of transit for energy sources to tissues, and wastes from tissues to the blood. Lymph capillaries, however, penetrate tissues, and serves as "drains" to the lymph vessel to which they are attached. In essence, things enter and exit blood capillaries, but lymphatic capillaries are only a point of exit. (MORE)
capillaries are the fine branches of arteries or veins which supply blood to the bodies extremities, and veins are the thinner tubes carrying the de oxygenated blood back to the heart.
Is the afferent arteriole entering the glomerulus always thicker than the efferent arteriole leaving the glomerulus?
It always has a widre lumen so that blood is forced to diffuse and filter. This puts a little more stress on the afferent arteriole and so a slight increase in the thickness of the tunica media may be noted.
Carbon dioxide is produced as a waste product of respiration, and is taken in the bloodstream to the capillaries outside the lungs, where the CO 2 diffuses into the alveoli of the lungs.
The Main Differences: Arteries: Arteries carry oxygenated blood, and are very narrow but thick, to enable them to maintain a high blood pressure, whilst also withstanding that pressure. Veins: Veins carry de-oxygenated blood, and are very dilate and thin, as they do not need to carry blood… at such high pressures. Different Branches: Arteries and Veins: The circulatory system branches off into smaller and smaller parts. Firstly the arteries and veins, the largest of the blood vessels, carry large volumes of blood to the necessary parts of the body. Arterioles and Venules: These then branch off into arterioles and venules, which are smaller in diameter, and so carry smaller volumes of blood, however, they are more numerous. Arterioles and venules effectively surround the organs and tissues, to ensure that the whole of the organ/tissue can receive oxygen or remove carbon dioxide etc. Capillaries: These arterioles and venules then branch off into tiny capillaries, which are only thick enough to allow one red blood cell through at a time. This means that transport through the capillaries is slower, and there is more time for diffusion, osmosis etc. to take place. The capillaries are even more numerous than the arterioles and venules, in fact, they are spread in between every few cells. This allows for effective diffusion between the blood and the tissue, as the substances do not have to travel very far. The capillary walls are also only one cell thick, which allows for efficient diffusion, as the substances being transported do not have to travel very far. (MORE)
The structure of arteries and capillaries are different because their functions are different.. Arteries carry blood from the heart, so their walls have to withstand high blood pressure. They also have to maintain blood pressure to ensure a continuous blood flow. Therefore, their three-layered wall…s are strong, elastic, have smooth muscle cells and collagen fibres.. Capillaries exchange material (oxygen, carbon dioxide, nutrients etc.) between the blood and interstitial fluid. To be able to carry out this function, they have to have very thin, permeable walls.

Arteries carry blood away from the heart to body tissues. Capillaries are present near almost every body cell, and they are known as exchange vessels because they permit the exchange of nutrients and wastes between the body's cells and the blood. Veins are the blood vessesl that convey blood from …the tissues back to the heart. (MORE)
How does the structure of the capillary wall compare with the structure of the wall of an arteriole?
capillary walls are very thin, often a cell thick. artery walls have two thick layers.
Why water and dissolved substances leave the arterioles end of the capillary and enter the venule end?
Water and dissolved substances leave the arteriole end of the capillary due to hydrostatic pressure being higher than osmotic pressure and enter the venule of the capillary due to osmotic pressure being higher than hydrostatic pressure.
Both are connected but play different role in our body circulatory system. These are the difference between veins and capillaries.. Capillaries are consist of single cell epithelium through which blood cells can pass while veins epithelium is bigger enough to hold blood cells in it. . Capillaries …connect veins and arteries in body. . Veins always carry de-oxygenated blood except pulmonary vein which carries blood from lung to heart while capillaries carry both oxygenated and de-oxygenated blood depends on their end i.e. on arteries side they carry oxygenated blood and on veins site they carry de-oxygenated blood, here also process is reversed in case of pulmonary arteries and veins.

The capillaries are where the gas and nutrient exchanges occur. Because in a closed circulation system the blood can't go outside the vessels, it must go to the capillary beds where it is about 1 cell thick to have diffusion. Alveoli in lungs are covered by capillaries to allow gas exchange to happe…n. The capillaries are most abundant of all the blood vessels, because most part of your body requires oxygen, and capillaries are where it can be given to cells. (MORE)

Arteioles are blood vessels that connect arteries and capillaries.. Capillaries are blood vessels that connect arterioles and venules
Continous capillaries contain tight junctions and are less "leaky " than fenestrated capillaries. They only allow the movement of water and small ions, whereas fenestrated capillaries contain many fenestrae or pores and allow many molecules with the exception of medium and large proteins to pass
Arteries, cause they are large vessels coming right from the pump of the heart (the left ventricle).
blood, at first it is deoxygenated but by the time it leaves the lungs it is full of dissolved oxygen
they are tiny blood vessels around the body that connect arteries to veins. they transport oxygen,nutrients etc around the body and collect waste products
Lymphatic capillaries carry lymph fluid while blood capillaries carry blood. Otherwise they run side by side.
Veins, arteries, and capillaries are all blood vessels. The main difference between veins and arteries is that in veins blood flows toward the heart, while in arteries blood is flowing away from the heart. Arteries therefore contain oxygenated blood, while veins are bringing blood back to the heart …to get more oxygen after the cells deliver the oxygen to cells all over your body. They are also structured differently. Arteries are structured to actually pump blood to help with blood flow through the body. This is why you can feel your "pulse" in your wrist. Veins do not pump blood; blood is simply forced through by the strength of the heart and arteries pumping the blood behind it. In order to prevent backflow (or blood flowing away from the heart within the vein), veins contain valves which only open in one direction, therefore only allowing blood to flow in one direction. You can think of them as a V-shaped stopper, where the point of the V opens to allow blood to flow downward, but not upward. Capillaries are very, very tiny blood vessels, so small that only a single blood cell can pass through at a time. They help blood deliver the oxygen they carry directly to a single cell because they are so small. (MORE)
No. Once blood reaches the alveoli it will immediately start to release CO2 to the air in our lungs and absorb O2 from the air in our lungs. This means that the PCO2 will be higher in the blood of the pulmonary artery than in the blood of the alveolus. If this were not so, then passing blood through… the alveoli would be pointless. (MORE)

Capillaries pick up oxygen and nutrients from the alveoli, while the alveoli picks up carbon dioxide and waste from the capillaries. There're the places where gas exchange takes place.
Hydrostatic pressure(inside capillary) is higher than osmotic pressure it re-enters the capillary on venule end because inside the hydrostatic pressure is now lessthan osmotic pressure drawing water back in
The capillary bed in the lungs is where the oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged.
The importance of capillaries lies in their very thin walls. Unlike arteries and veins, capillary walls are thin enough that oxygen and nutrients in your blood can pass through the walls to the parts of your body that need them to work normally. Capillaries' thin walls also allow waste products lik…e carbon dioxide to pass from your body's organs and tissues into the blood, where it's taken away to your lungs. (MORE)
A capilliary is a minute blood vessel - a valve is something found usually in a vein or artery - which stops blood flowing 'backwards'
Capillaries tiny, extremely thin-walled vessels act as a sort of bridge between arteries and veins. The thin walls of the capillaries allow oxygen and nutrients to pass from the blood into tissues and allow waste products to pass from tissues into the blood. *Arteries and arterioles have muscular wa…lls that can adjust to increased or decreased blood flow.

it has many more capillaries...if you were to wrap all of your capillaries around earth it would wrap around twice
Cutting an artery is much more dangerour even lethal than cutting a capillary. The arteries are the largest of blood vessels overall where as capillaries are the smallest overall.
The afferent arteriole supplies blood to the capillaries in the glomerulus of the kidneys. The efferent arteriole takes the blood away from the glomerulus.
capillaries by definition don't have any smooth muscle in their walls. They are simply made of one layer of endothelial cells.
The escape of tissue fluid from the capillaries occurs through small gaps present in the walls of the capillaries.These gaps are quite big so as to allow the passage of fairly large molecules but are not large enough to allow the escape of erythrocytes.
well for one lymph capillaries depend on skeletal muscles to move and cardiovascular capillaries have there own smooth muscle. also lymph muscles carry lymph which cleans the body while cardiovascular capillaries provide nutrients and oxygen for the body
A capillarie are tiny blood vessels in your body The other idiot who answered it told me to, so I did and made a better answer
In the Lungs capillaries switch out oxygen when you hale in, and give CO2 back, which you exhale. From your Lungs oxygen runs trough your whole body. (in the blood)
Capillaries are smaller, thinner and have less surface area than veins. Veins take blood to the heart, and capillaries are the thin tubes that connect the veins and arteries together.
they enter by flowing threw your funny bone and then flying into outer space and then they get smaller when they reach your dog and enter the capllaries
Because capillaries have to be small to be able to exchange co2 (carbon dioxide) and oxygen.
Arterioles are the small arteries that lead into the capillaries,which connect to cells in the body. Venules are the small veinsthat the capillaries flow back into, leaving the cells.
The blood pressure is usually high when blood leaves the smallarteries and enters the capillaries.
