Unformatted text preview: after blood leaves the heart? Example 5 : It is possible for one medication to reduce the effectiveness of other medicines taken simultaneously. If a patient taking an antibiotic also takes a kaolinpectin medication for diarrhea, the antibiotic adsorbs to the surface of the kaolin particles and passes out of the body. The amount of antibiotic available to the body is reduced. Suppose the adsorption coefficient for the amount of antibiotic adsorbed to the kaolin particles is given by: 16 ( ) 2 C A C k C = + where C represents the resulting concentration of antibiotic in the blood plasma (mg/dL), A represents the adsorption coefficient of antibiotic (mg of antibiotic/g of kaolinpectin mixture), and k is a constant. Find an equation that represents the rate of change of the adsorption coefficient. 4...
