## Elimination Rate Constant given Area under Curve Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Elimination Rate Constant = Dose/(Area Under Curve*Volume of Distribution)
ke = D/(AUC*Vd)
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Elimination Rate Constant - (Measured in 1 Per Second) - Elimination Rate Constant is the rate at which a drug is removed from the body.
Dose - (Measured in Mole) - The Dose is the amount of drug administered.
Area Under Curve - (Measured in Mole Second per Cubic Meter) - Area under Curve (AUC) is the definite integral of a curve that describes the variation of a drug concentration in blood plasma as a function of time.
Volume of Distribution - (Measured in Cubic Meter) - The Volume of Distribution is the parameter relating drug concentration in plasma to drug amount in the body.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Dose: 8 Mole --> 8 Mole No Conversion Required
Area Under Curve: 1.32 Mole Second per Liter --> 1320 Mole Second per Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
Volume of Distribution: 9 Liter --> 0.009 Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
ke = D/(AUC*Vd) --> 8/(1320*0.009)
Evaluating ... ...
ke = 0.673400673400673
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.673400673400673 1 Per Second -->2424.24242424242 1 Per Hour (Check conversion here)
2424.24242424242 1 Per Hour <-- Elimination 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.

## How to Calculate Elimination Rate Constant given Area under Curve?

Elimination Rate Constant given Area under Curve calculator uses Elimination Rate Constant = Dose/(Area Under Curve*Volume of Distribution) to calculate the Elimination Rate Constant, The Elimination Rate Constant given Area under Curve formula is defined as the ratio of the amount of drug administered to the apparent volume in which a drug is distributed and area under the curve of the concentration-time graph. Elimination Rate Constant is denoted by ke symbol.
