process of formation of Urine

1. Filtration: The renal artery brings the blood which containing the waste material to the kidneys. Then it enters to the glomerulus under high pressure. Water and small solutes are filtered in the Bowman’s capsule.

2. Reabsorption: The filtrate passes through the thin walls of the Bowman’s capsule into the urinary or renal tubule. As it passes through the tubule, water and many useful substances are reabsorbed by the renal blood capillaries.
