    A 35-year-old female complains to her doctor that she is suffering from frequent
    urination. Her resting blood pressure and heart rate are 120/80 and 72, respectively.
    Her plasma creatinine is 0.85 mg/dl, urine flow is 5 ml/min, and urine osmolarity is
    190 mOsm/l. Her plasma osmolarity is 290 mOsm/l. Calculate her osmolar clearance
    and free water clearance. Is her urine dilute or concentrated?
