After an injection, the concentration of a drug in a patient's body increases rapidly to a peak and then slowly decreases. Graph the concentration of the drug in the body as function of the time since the injection was given. Assume that the patient has none of the drug in the body before the injection. Label the peak concentration and the time it takes to reach that concentration. Do this on your paper.
