This calculator shows your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level
How To Use
- Enter the number of drinks you drink. It can be one drink or several. If there are several drinks, the calculator sums them up.
- Then enter your weight (approximate), gender, and the time in hours since you last consumed.
- Click CALCULATE and that’s it!
Please, keep in mind:
BAC limits for Adults and Minors are not the same!
Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limits for minors laws ban youth under the age of 21 from driving with a blood alcohol content above measurable levels (usually 0.01–0.02 compared to 0.08 for adults).
Even a 0.01 BAC Increases Accident Risk!
A blood alcohol content (BAC) as low as 0.01% raises the risk of causing a fatal car crash, says a new study from UC San Diego. According to researchers, a BAC of exactly 0.01% increases the risk of being the sole reason for a fatal accident compared with a sober driver also involved in the crash.
The following are several factors that influence your BAC:
- Age – As you grow older, the intoxicating impact of alcohol increases.
- Gender – Alcohol is readily soluble in water. Women, on average, have a lower proportion of water in their bodies than males, so if they consume alcohol at the same rate as men of comparable age and weight, they typically reach a higher BAC.
- Rate of Consumption – The higher your BAC, the quicker you’ll be intoxicated.
- Body Type – The more water you have in your body, the more diluted the alcohol you consume becomes. That’s why heavier individuals require additional beverages to “keep up” with their lighter friends.
- Medications – Alcohol interacts negatively with a variety of medicines, including cold or allergy tablets and prescription medications.
- Food – If you drink alcohol on an empty stomach, your BAC will be higher than that of someone who has eaten.
- Diabetes – People who have diabetes and drink alcohol may experience hypoglycemia as a result of altered glucose levels.
