## Volume of Distribution given Elimination Half Life Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Volume of Distribution = (Volume of Plasma Cleared*Elimination Half Life)/ln(2)
Vd = (CL*tb/2)/ln(2)
This formula uses 1 Functions, 3 Variables
Functions Used
ln - Natural logarithm function (base e), ln(Number)
Variables Used
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.
Volume of Plasma Cleared - (Measured in Cubic Meter per Second) - The Volume of Plasma Cleared is defined as the amount of plasma cleared of the drug per unit of time.
Elimination Half Life - (Measured in Second) - Elimination Half Life is the time required for the concentration of the drug to reach half of its original value.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Volume of Plasma Cleared: 0.48 Liter per Second --> 0.00048 Cubic Meter per Second (Check conversion here)
Elimination Half Life: 12 Second --> 12 Second No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Vd = (CL*tb/2)/ln(2) --> (0.00048*12)/ln(2)
Evaluating ... ...
Vd = 0.00830992343552043
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.00830992343552043 Cubic Meter -->8.30992343552043 Liter (Check conversion here)
8.30992343552043 8.309923 Liter <-- Volume of Distribution

## 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.
