I'm sooo confused on tissue fluid .ive read the textbook about 15times and watched videos in YouTube and still confused .
What I know is :at the arterial end of the capillary there's high hydrostatic pressure so substances in the blood are forced out so water potential of the blood increases.at the venule end of the capillary substances move back in due to high water potential of the blood (I think I'm wrong here) ..Now I'm Lost :|
Then the book talks about osmosis and osmotic pressure and Lymph -_-
Help anyone

Water potential remains the same throughout. At the arterial end the hydrostatic pressure has a greater effect than the water potential difference. At the venal end, the hydrous tic pressure is less , due to the loss of fluid, than the effect of the water potential difference, therefore water is drawn back through the capillaries by osmosis. The water potential difference does not actually change. Hope this helps
