Size of a Human: Body Proportions (653 words)
The proportion of wingspan to height is found by dividing the wingspan of the person over their measured height.
Graphically the proportion of height to wingspan is represented by coefficient A on the proportional fit equation, y=A*x, shown on the Wingspan vs Height graph.
Graphically the proportion of forearm+hand to forearm is represented by coefficient A on the proportional fit equation, y=A*x, shown on the forearm+hand vs forearm graph.
Alcohol and the Human Body / How Alcohol Gets From the Blood into the Breath (0 words)
Alcohol is water soluble and the bloodstream rapidly transports the ethanol throughout the body where it is absorbed into the body tissues in proportion to their water content.
With a user that is smaller with say one half of the water weight in his or her body than the individual in the prior example, that same 0.4 fluid ounce of ethanol would likely produce an alcohol concentration at or near 0.04%.
Ethanol is volatile and as a result, an amount of alcohol, in proportion to the concentration in the blood, transfers from the blood into the alveolar air sacs in the lungs.
