Question: 3 plasma contains a variety of proteins that exert osmotic...

Question details

3. Plasma contains a variety of proteins that exert osmotic pressure. A list of these, their molecular weights, an<d approximate protein concentrations are given below. Calculate the approximate osmotic pressure in plasma [in mmHg] that is due just to plasma proteins at body temperature Protein Albumin Fibrinogein Immunoglobin G Immunoglobin M α2 globulins Ci globulins B globulins Average Molecular Weight Plasma Concentration (g/dL) 69,000 330,000 150,000 750,000 100,000 50,000 100,000 4.2 0.3 0.8 0.3 0.7 0.5 0.8
