Calculate the rate of transport by filtration

calculate the rate of transport by filtration and diffusion of asmall water soluble, but lipid insoluble solute, such as glucose.the diffusivity of glucose (D) is 0.91 x 10-5cm2 sec-1 and its molecular radius 0.36nm.The average concentration of glucose in plasma is about 5?moleml-1 and it is assumed that all the glucose istransported to the extracapillary space is consumed instantly by the cells. Assume that all the plasma proteins are retained by thecapillary wall. Also assume the tortuosity of the capillary wall isequal to 2.
