    that as time goes on, the concentration decrease. A reason for this is because the “drug”, eosin is actually being removed or eliminated out of the body at a certain rate. The correlation coefficient is 0,99, which also represents a high correlation. The initial and end-experimental flow rate of fluid or “blood” in your body, stayed constant at 20 ml min-1, where as, the mid-experimental flow rate decreased to 19 ml min-1. Once understanding that as time goes on, the concentration of the “drug” decrease due to the elimination out of the blood stream, a natural logarithm of concentration against time was constructed. Figure 3 shows this correlation. The graph shows a negative linear correlation. This graph gives us another indication that concentration of the drug – eosin, decrease over the time period allocated. The coefficient of determination is 0,99, which shows as well, that 99% of the total variation in the natural logarithm of concentration (ln) can be explained by the linear relationship between ln concentration and time of the solutions. The correlation coefficient is also 0,99, which shows a high correlation. From this graph we are able to determine the elimination rate constant. This was determined from the slope of the graph (-0,0372). In order to calculate this rate, we used the equation, -k = slope and therefore that rate was found to be 0,0372 min-1 or 6,2 x10-4 s-1. This means that the drug is being eliminate out of the body at a rate of 0,0372 min-1 or 6,2…
