      urine is formed by the three steps…
      Filtration
      Reabsorbtion
      Secretion

      what is the difference between reabsorbtion and secretion ?

      My though: The difference is that reabsorbtion is the movement of essential molecules rom the nephrons to the blood. Where as secretion is the movement of ammonia and other durgs or substances that the blody is trying to get rid of, from the blood to the nephrons.

      Am I right ?

      the process right after filtration and reabsorption…:lol:
      that’s the best answer..

      That could be a good answer but that’s NOT a proper one 😉 If you answer that way in my Physiology class you are failed. Sorry 😛

      so what is the proper one? 😉 Will you let us know DrStein?

      Maybe latter… The time is still enough for you to search for the answer by yourselves 🙂

      Pick your explanation:
      1. The act or process of augmenting, or making larger, by addition, expansion, or dilation; increase.

      2. The state of being augmented; enlargement.

      3. The thing added by way of enlargement.

      4. A additional charge to a coat of arms, given as a mark of honor.

      5. (Science: medicine) The stage of a disease in which the symptoms go on increasing.

      6. In counterpoint and fugue, a repetition of the subject in tones of twice the original length. Augmentation court, a court erected by Stat. 27 Hen. VIII, to augment to revenues of the crown by the suppression of monasteries. It was long ago dissolved.

      Synonym: Increase, enlargement, growth, extension, accession, addition.

      😉 😉 😉 😉

      Andrew is seaching for us. By the way, I did it too, but couldn’t relate them to urine formation. 😉

      but who said it should be about urine formation?

      haha..I won’t let my ballpoint write those silly sentences in your physiology class..relax Dr…as a good soon-to-be-biologist, I’ll wrote much better definition than my previous.. 😀

      the Admin said it, because this is Physiology class… 😆

      DrStein said that victor catched the point but not properly. 🙂

      Well she didn’t say anything about my dictionary explanations yet. So i am hoping she won’t :))

      Well, I should admit that sometimes (read: often)* I am being offtopic here and there and everywhere, but this time I am surely ontopic, means that the term "augmentation" I asked you here has a relationship, even very close one, with urine formation 🙂

      Andrew, well done, smarty! You got the keyword: addition 🙂 If I had you here as my student, aww I would give you A+++ 😆

      I still don’t see any giving-up sign, so I decided to keep the answer 😉
