Question 2. A drug was given by multiple oral doses of 500 mg every 3 hr. Assume a one compartment linear model applies to this drug in this concentration range. For this dosage form and patient the bioavailability is 0.87 and the absorption rate constant is 1.49 hr

Question 3. A drug has been given by multiple oral dose of 25 mg every 12 hours. Assume a one compartment linear model applies to this drug in this concentration range. The half-life and V for this drug in this patient (49.8 kg) are 2.7 hr and 1.05 L/kg, respectively. For this dosage form and patient the bioavailability is 0.88. Assume that e
