The Stirling equation is expressed as follows
$J = Kf ([Pc-Pi] - σ [πc - πi])$
Here, capillary hydrostatic pressure (Pc) and Bowman's space oncotic pressure (πi) favor filtration into the tubule, and Bowman's space hydrostatic pressure (Pi) and capillary-oncotic pressure (πc) .
- What does σ, or Staverman's reflection coefficient, in this equation mean?
- And by what logic or method is it determined?
