Maximum water is absorbed from
Jejunum (5500 ml), ileum (2000 ml), colon (1300 ml); total (8800 ml)
Very small movement of water occurs in the stomach.
Thus, out of the total input of 9000 ml of water, 8800 is absorbed; 200 ml is lost in stools. In other words, nearly 98% of the total input is absorbed. About 7500 ml gets absorbed in small intestine and only 1500 ml goes to the colon; out of this 1500 ml, 1300 ml gets absorbed in the colon.
