Ryan King – E101 SEC 016H Homework Show all work for full credit. Remember significant figures. Filtration of the blood by the kidneys is a major process in removing chemicals from our bodies. Usually, the kidneys filter a fixed fraction of the chemical from the blood each time period. In class, we learned that the elimination of chemicals such as caffeine from the body can be modeled by an exponential function of the form f ( t ) = A r t where t is time in hours, A is the amount that was in the body at the start and r is the fraction of chemical that was not eliminated during the time period, and f ( t ) represents the amount of the chemical left in our plasma after t time units. In our in‐class examples, we assumed that no more of the chemical was being added to the body. However, many of us will still continue to consume caffeine. So, we want to model situations in which there is a continuing entry of the chemical into our bodies.
