Question: elimination of ethanol from the blood is known to have...

Question details

Elimination of ethanol from the blood is known to have zeroth order kinetics. Provided no more ethanol enters the blood, the concentration of ethanol in a persons blood will therefore obey the dM diferential equationKo. where for a certain adult ko -0.186 gi/literfhr. Complete parts (a) through (c) below dM (a) Explain why M(t) can only obey the above differential equation if M*0 (once M drops to o, it is usual to assumedChoose the correct answer below. A. The differential equation is negative and at M(t)-0 there is no ethanol left in the body. OB. The differential equation becomes undefined at M(t) 0 C. M(t)-0 does not exist. OD. The differential equation is positive and at M(t) 0 there is no ethanol left in the body. (b) If a persons blood alcohol concentration is 1.5 g/liter at midnight, what will his or her blood alcohol concentration be at 4 AM? You may assume that he or she drinks no more alcohol after midnight. His or her blood alcohol concentration will be at 4 AM.
