Question

Question 6 The rate at which a certain drug is eliminated by the body follows first-order kinetics, with a half life of 90 minutes. Suppose in a particular patient the concentration of this drug in the bloodstream immediately after injection is 0.19 μg/mL. What will the concentration be 180 minutes later? Round your answer to 2 significant digits.
