True or False 1. Each nephron receives one efferent arteriole which divides into a network of capillaries known as glomerulus. 2. The renal cortex and renal pyramids of the renal medulla constitute the parenchyma of the kidney 3. On the anterior surface of the kidneys, the renal fascia is deep to the peritoneum

Answer

The urinary system in humans is responsible for removing waste products and excess fluid from the body. The system consists of two kidneys, two ureters, the bladder, and the urethra. The kidneys are bean-shaped organs that filter waste products and excess fluid from the blood. The waste products and excess fluid pass through the thin walls of the kidney cells and into tiny tubes called renal tubules. The renal tubules empty into larger tubes called the ureters.

 

1. False. Each nephron receives between one and three efferent arterioles.

2. False. The renal cortex is the outer layer of the kidney, while the renal pyramids are located in the inner part of the kidney.

3. True. On the anterior surface of the kidneys, the renal fascia is deep to the peritoneum. This layer of connective tissue surrounds the kidney and helps to anchor it in place. It also separates the kidney from other organs in the abdominal cavity.
