If the plasma concentration of a drug is 3.01 mg/L and the clearance is 8.46 L/hr, then calculate the rate of elimination.

lb equals 25.46 mg/h kg

    For rate of elimination (dX/dt), we can write:
    `(dX)/dt = Cp × Cl`

    `\implies (dX)/dt = 3.01 \quad (mg)/L × 8.46 \quad L/h`

    `∴ (dX)/dt = 25.46 \quad (mg)/h` (Ans).
