Drink Tables

  An easy way to condense the information about how much one can safely drink and stay under a given limit is to compute a table which I have done for a peak alcohol content of 0.10 gm/100ml using Widmark's rho factors of 0.7 liter/kg for men and 0.6 liter/kg for women. The columns are computed for a number of alcohol percentages of the drinks. The rows are for the given body masses in kilograms.

For a lower peak BAC value like 0.08 gm/100ml one can multiply the volumes given by 0.08/0.10 = 0.8 to get the reduced volume that one can safely drink.
