what is the equation for renal clearance?
Renal clearance = U*V/P U-conc of urine v-volume of urine/min p-conc in plasma.

how can you tell if something is secreted or reabsorbed?
GFR is measure by insulin. more clearance than insulin =secreted less=reabsorbed.

PAH?
paraaminohippuric acid is all cleared from plasma even though it is a protein. so PAH clearance=renal plasma flow.
