Name three types of fluids in different parts of Nephrons

Dear student,
Tubular fluid is the fluid in the tubules of the kidney. Cortical nephrons can be subdivided into superficial cortical nephrons and midcortical nephrons. Juxtamedullary nephrons start low in the cortex near themedulla and have a long loop of Henle, which penetrates deeply into the renal medulla: only they have their loop of Henle surrounded by the vasa recta.
The other two are water and urine glomerular filtrate.
