A 40-year old man, at a prominent legal firm experiences abdominal pain post lunch. He takes several trips to the restroom, but continues to experience pain and cramps. He decides to go to the doctor and admits he consumed 2 bottles of beer @ lunch. The alcohol content (alcohol/ethenol) in a 12 oz. bottle of beer is about 5%. The man's weight is 150 pounds and he was drinking over an hour period. Please show me how to calculate % of alcohol in his body, the chemical reaction that took place and identify the substance produced in the liver to help catalyze this reaction. Thankyou
