Please help quick BAC question
« on: November 06, 2008, 03:33:27 PM »

The average adult male has a total blood volume of 5.0 L. After drinking a few beers, he has a BAC of 0.30. Blood alcohol concentration (BAC), is given in units of grams of alcohol per 100 mL of blood.


What mass of alcohol is circulating in his blood?
