Problem

The molecular weight of ethanol (C2H5OH) is 46.1 and the density of absolute (100%) ethanol = 0.79 g/mL.

During a romantic candlelight dinner a 75 kg person drinks a bottle (750 mL) of wine in the space of 3 hours. Ethanol is metabolized at a constant rate of 120 mg per hour per kg body weight, regardless of its concentration. A 75 kg person contains about 40 L of ‘water’. Ignore the metabolism, and assume the water content of the person remains constant.

a)What is their blood alcohol content (mg/100 mL blood) at the end of the dinner?

 

 

 

b)How long will it take for their blood alcohol level to fall below the legal limit of 50mg of ethanol per 100mL of blood (0.05%)?
