(2 pts) Hydrocodone bitartrate is used as a cough suppressant. After the drug is fully absorbed, the quantity of
drug in the body decreases at a rate proportional to the amount left in the body, with constant of
proportionality k. Suppose that the half-life of hydrocodone bitartrate in the body is 3.8 hours, and that the
oral dose taken is 9 mg.
(a) Write a differential equation for the quantity, Q, of hydrocodone bitartrate in the body at time t, in hours,
since the drug was fully absorbed.
e' =
(Write your answer in terms of Q and t, e.g., Q' = 3t(1 – kQ).)
(b) Solve your differential equation, assuming that at t = 0 the patient has just absorbed the full 9 mg dose of
the drug.
Q=
(Your solution may include the constant of proporationality k, but should not include any other unspecified
constant.)
(c) Use the half-life to find the constant of proportionality, k.
k=
(d) How much of the 9 mg dose is still in the body after 12 hours?
Amount =
