Estimate Blood Alcohol Concentration
This small app helps you estimate your current %BAC (blood alcohol concentration) as well as how long it will take until you are sober. Note that the legal limit for driving varies a lot between countries or even between states or counties.
The results are computed using a formula based on alcohol pharmacokinetics research by E.M.P. Widmark. This formula tries to be as accurate as possible, but it does not take into account advanced factors that may influence the BAC such as age, amount of food ingested (if any) and others. The most accurate method to measure the %BAC is using a breathalyzer.
See bottom of this page for a brief description of the effects of alcohol on the human body broken down by BAC levels.
