A simple way to calculate your BAC is with the following equation APPROXIMATE FORMULA: BAC=(drinks/2)*(Gender_Constant/Weight) - 0.016*Hours. Where 'drinks' is the number of drinks you have had, the 'Gender Constant' is 9.0 for men and 7.5 for women, 'Weight' is your weight in lbs and 'Hours' is how many hours you have been drinking. Following this equation we see that your body is able to reduce your BAC by 0.016 per every hour, thus if a male of weight 150lbs had 6 drinks in an hour their BAC would be 0.1639. If the same person had the same amount of drinks but spaced them out to 3 hours his BAC would be 0.132. That is why it is recommended that you space out your drinking. !!!!!!!!IMPORTANT: THIS IS AN APPROXIMATE EQUATION. DO NOT BASE YOUR DRINKING ON THIS EQUATION!!!!!!!!!!
