## Absorption Half-Life of Drug Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Absorption Half Life = ln(2)/Absorption Rate Constant
ta/2 = ln(2)/ka
This formula uses 1 Functions, 2 Variables
Functions Used
ln - Natural logarithm function (base e), ln(Number)
Variables Used
Absorption Half Life - (Measured in Second) - The Absorption Half Life is the time for the concentration of the drug to double its original value for oral and other extravascular routes.
Absorption Rate Constant - (Measured in 1 Per Second) - Absorption Rate Constant is the rate at which a drug enters into the body for oral and other extravascular routes.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Absorption Rate Constant: 0.693 1 Per Hour --> 0.0001925 1 Per Second (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
ta/2 = ln(2)/ka --> ln(2)/0.0001925
Evaluating ... ...
ta/2 = 3600.76457433738
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
3600.76457433738 Second --> No Conversion Required
3600.76457433738 3600.765 Second <-- Absorption Half Life

Fraction of Drug Unbound in Tissue given Apparent Tissue Volume
Fraction Unbound in Tissue = (Fraction Unbound in Plasma*Apparent Tissue Volume)/(Volume of Distribution-Plasma Volume)
Secretion Rate of Drug
Secretion Rate of Drug = (Renal Clearance*Plasma Concentration)-(Filtration Rate)+(Reabsorption Rate of Drug)
Reabsorption Rate of Drug
Reabsorption Rate of Drug = ((Renal Clearance*Plasma Concentration)+Filtration Rate+Secretion Rate of Drug)
Filtration Rate of Drug
Filtration Rate = ((Renal Clearance*Plasma Concentration)+Reabsorption Rate of Drug-Secretion Rate of Drug)
Relative Bioavailability of Drug
Relative Bioavailability = (Area under curve Dosage A/Area under curve Dosage B)*(Dose Type B/Dose Type A)
Drug Purity given Rate of Administration and Dosing Interval
Rate of Administration of Drug given Dosing Interval
Drug Purity given Administrative Dose and Effective Dose
Drug Purity = Effective Dose/(Administered Dose*Bioavailability)
Renal Clearance of Drug
Renal Clearance = Drug Amount Excreted Unchanged in Urine/Area Under Curve
Concentration of Drug given Rate of Infusion of Drug
Concentration of Drug = Rate of Infusion/Volume of Plasma Cleared
Rate of Infusion of Drug
Rate of Infusion = Volume of Plasma Cleared*Concentration of Drug
Absorption Half-Life of Drug
Absorption Half Life = ln(2)/Absorption Rate Constant
Drug Rate Entering Body
Absorption Rate Constant = ln(2)/Absorption Half Life
Apparent Volume of Drug Distribution
Volume of Distribution = Dose/Concentration of Drug

## Absorption Half-Life of Drug Formula

Absorption Half Life = ln(2)/Absorption Rate Constant

## What is Pharmacokinetics?

Pharmacokinetics is a branch of pharmacology dedicated to determine the fate of substances administered to a living organism. The substances of interest include any chemical xenobiotic such as: pharmaceutical drugs, pesticides, food additives, cosmetics, etc. It attempts to analyze chemical metabolism and to discover the fate of a chemical from the moment that it is administered up to the point at which it is completely eliminated from the body. Pharmacokinetics is the study of how an organism affects a drug, whereas pharmacodynamics (PD) is the study of how the drug affects the organism. Both together influence dosing, benefit, and adverse effects, as seen in PK/PD models.
