A person posts a thread stating that they had a great vacation, culminating in the purchase of 35 bottles of single malt scotch whisky of varying types. The response:|
35 bottles * 0.750 L/bottle * 40% abv = 10.5 L of alcohol
10.5 L * (1000 cm^3)/1 L * 0.789 g/cm^3 = 8280 g of alcohol
Average adult blood volume is 5 L and density is 1.06 g/cm^3
5 L * (1000 cm^3)/1 L * 1.06 g/cm^3 = 5300 g of blood
5300 g * 0.08% BAC = 4.24 g of alcohol needed to get drunk
8280 g / 4.24 g = 1950 drunks in those 35 bottles
Alternatively, a typical metabolism rate for alcohol is 10 g/hr
8280 g * 1 hr/10 g = 828 hours
828 hours * 1 day/24 hrs = 34.5 days of continuous drunkenness
In other words, a typical bottle of scotch is a man-day of drunkenness.
That's why I love reading this group. I learn something new every 750ml.
