[prMac.com] Pfaeffikon, Switzerland - Power App today is pleased to introduce Aristoteles 1.0 for iOS, their free Utility that calculates blood alcohol level or blood alcohol content based on data supplied by the user. The app displays five empty numeric fields: Weight, Height, Age, Desired Blood Alcohol percentage, and Sex M/F. After entering the required variables, the app provides a scrolling list of the quantity of popular alcoholic beverages that must be consumed to reach the target Blood Alcohol Content. The legal BAC, after which a person is driving while intoxicated, varies from country to country and state to state, and can be between 0% and 0.08%
Aristoteles also displays the quantity of 100% alcohol the user would need to consume to reach the Desired Blood Alcohol percentage. The percentage of alcohol in the bloodstream is determined by several variables. For example, men have a higher water content in their blood (58%) than women (49%). This suggests that men would need to drink more to become intoxicated than women of the same weight. MakeMeDrunk takes into account three other factors besides gender: Height, Weight, and Age. Because the app accounts for the four primary variables, its resultant calculations are highly accurate.
While it is universally recognized that drinking affects driving performance, standard vary widely. Russia and Hungary have a zero tolerance policy with no BAC above 0% permissible. China and Poland have a 0.02% policy, Germany and France set the limit at 0.05%, while the US and UK permit up to 0.08%.
After filling in all the variables, touching the calculate button brings up a scrolling list of results. Users may request results in any number of the three categories of alcoholic beverages listed: Beer, Wine, Hard Liquor. In each category the exact number of liters necessary to reach the desired alcohol level is displayed. Also shown is the alcohol content by volume of each beverage. For example, and individual needs to consume 0.220 liters (220 ml, 7.4 oz) of beer (5% alcohol, 10 proof) to reach 0.08% BAC. The same person would need to drink 0.069 liters (69 ml, 2.3 oz) of table wine (8% alcohol, 16 proof), or 0.0131 liters (13.1 ml, 0.44 oz) of bourbon (43% alcohol, 86 proof) to reach 0.08% BAC.
