EXERCISE 16

Exercise [adapted from the text, Nutrition Up Close box, pg. 14-7)].

  1. Estimating blood alcohol is similar to the types of calculations you will have to do when you take your pharmacology course. It involves algebra, and I realize you did not expect to ever actually do algebra after High School, but “Oh, well.” Beer and wine often have fine-print disclosure on the label stating the alcohol content as percent by volume. You can also find the alcohol content of most beers (by brand) at www.alcoholcontents.com; the site also gives alcohol content for wine by variety. Select two of your (or some other person's) favorite beers or wines, and compare their alcohol content.
