### A typical glass of wine and Eight ounces of a hard liquor

Question 1: Blood Alcohol Content: Wine. A typical glass of wine contains about 19 grams of alcohol. Consider a 116-pound woman, with approximately 5 liters (5000 milliliters) of blood, who drinks two glasses of wine.

OR

A typical glass of wine contains about 20 grams of alcohol. Consider a 96-pound woman, with approximately 6 liters (6000 milliliters) of blood, who drinks two glasses of wine.

OR

A typical glass of wine contains about 20 grams of alcohol. Consider a 110-pound woman, with approximately 4 liters (4000 milliliters) of blood, who drinks two glasses of wine.

OR

A typical glass of wine contains about 21 grams of alcohol. consider a 107-pound woman, with approximately 6 liters (6000 milliliters) of blood, who drinks two glasses of wine. complete parts (a) and (b) below.

If all the alcohol were immediately absorbed into her bloodstream, what would her blood alcohol content be? Explain why it is fortunate that, in reality, the alcohol is not absorbed immediately

ANS: (A) 19 gm / 5000 ml = 0.0038 gm per ml

ANS: (A) 20 gm / 6000 ml = 0.0033 gm per ml

ANS: (A) 20 gm / 4000 ml = 0.005 gm per ml

ANS: (A) 21 gm / 6000 ml = 0.0035 gm per ml

Again assume that all the alcohol is absorbed immediately, but now assume that her body eliminates the alcohol (through metabolism) at a rate of 10 grams per hour. What is her blood alcohol content 3 hours after drinking the wine? Is it safe for her to drive at this time? Explain.

ANS: (B) after 3 hours 0.0 gm per ml.

Question 2: Blood Alcohol Content: Hard Liquor. Eight ounces of a hard liquor (such as whiskey) typically contain about 70 grams of alcohol. Consider a 200-pound man, with approximately 6 liters (6000 milliliters) of blood, who quickly drinks 8 ounces of hard liquor.

If all the alcohol were immediately absorbed into his bloodstream, what would his blood alcohol content be? Explain why it is fortunate that, in reality, the alcohol is not absorbed immediately.

Again assume that all the alcohol is absorbed immediately, but now assume that his body eliminates the alcohol (through metabolism) at a rate of 15 grams per hour. What is his blood alcohol content 4 hours after drinking the liquor? Is it safe for him to drive at this time? Explain.

Again assume the alcohol is absorbed immediately, but now assume that her body eliminates the alcohol (through metabolism) at a rate of 10 grams per hour. What is her blood alcohol content 3 hours after drinking the wine? Is it safe for her to drive at this time? Explain.

ANS (A):??

ANS (B):??

ANS (C):??

Question 3: An average man has about 5 liters of blood, and average 12-Oz beer contains 15g of alcohol. If all the alcohol were immediately absorbed into his bloodstream, what would his BAC be?
