Definition:A calculated measurement of the rate at which the amount of alcohol in the blood divided by body weight (i.e. heaviness) decreases over time, that is, blood alcohol amount divided by body weight divided by the specified period of time. Ethanol is the colorless, volatile, flammable liquid, CH3CH2OH, produced by yeast fermentation of carbohydrates or synthesized by hydration of ethylene. Blood is the fluid that circulates through the heart, arteries, capillaries and veins carrying nutrients and oxygen to the body tissues and metabolites away from them.
