(d) Alcohol is removed from blood stream by a series of metabolic reactions. The first reaction produces acetaldehyde and then other products are formed. The following data have been determined for the rate at which alcohol is removed from blood of an average male. Although individual rates can vary by 25% - 30% women metabolize alcohol little more slowly.
