Question: Alcohol in excess of ________-proof will absorb more slowly because it irritates the stomach.
➜ What alcohol proof will absorb more slowly because it irritates the stomach?
A.) 30
B.) 40
C.) 60
D.) 50

Get the Correct ANSWER

40 (about 80 proof or 40% alcohol)

EXPLANATION: 1. The higher the alcohol the slower it will absorb in the stomach and in the body. Alcohol will pass more slowly through the stomach if you've eaten recently, allowing for more of it to be broken down before it reaches the liver, so eating before or while drinking really does slow down your buzz. And that's a good thing! Drinking excessive amounts of alcohol irritates the lining of the stomach and intestines, which brings on nausea or vomiting, delays alcohol absorption and prevents it from entering the small intestine.
2. The amount of alcohol in distilled liquor is known as proof. Proof refers to the amount of alcohol in the liquor; for example, 60 proof liquor contains 30% alcohol, 50-proof=25% alcohol and 40-proof=20% alcohol.


Question: Alcohol in excess of 30-proof will absorb more slowly because it irritates the stomach.
A.) TRUE
B.) FALSE

Get the Correct ANSWER

FALSE

Alcohol in excess of 40-proof will absorb more slowly because it irritates the stomach.


Question: For alcohol, proof is double the alcoholic percentage of a beverage.
A.) TRUE
B.) FALSE

Get the Correct ANSWER

TRUE

EXPLANATION: In the United States, proof is defined as double the percentage of alcohol contained in the beverage. Multiplied by 2 ex: 80 proof = 40% alcohol. To find proof multiply the percent alcohol by 2 ex: 50% = 100 proofs. To find percent alcohol divide the proof by 2 ex: 6 proofs = 3%


Question: Specialty drinks like a Long Island Ice Tea contain multiple shots of 80 proof alcoholic beverages.
A.) TRUE
B.) FALSE

Get the Correct ANSWER

TRUE


Question: How fast the alcohol is absorbed depends upon ___________
A.) the concentration of alcohol in the beverage.
B.) Whether the stomach is empty or full
C.) All of the above

Get the Correct ANSWER

All of the above

Get the Correct ANSWER

FALSE


Question: Alcohol strength refers to the _____ in a beverage.
Alcohol strength refers to the blank in a beverage
A.) hops and grain
B.) concentration of alcohol
C.) type of mixer
D.) carbonation

Get the Correct ANSWER

concentration of alcohol


Question: Absorption of alcohol by your body begins at the_______of drinking.
A.) end
B.) start
C.) alcohol is not absorbed.

Get the Correct ANSWER

start

EXPLANATION: Absorption of alcohol by your body begins when the individual starts to drink and ends when all of the alcohol is absorbed into bodily fluids.


Question: Absorption of alcohol by your body begins at the what of drinking
A.) end
B.) start
C.) alcohol is not absorbed.

Get the Correct ANSWER

start

EXPLANATION: Absorption of alcohol by your body begins when the individual starts to drink and ends when all of the alcohol is absorbed into bodily fluids.


Question: What percentage of alcohol is absorbed by the small intestine?
A.) 80-90%
B.) 50-60%
C.) 70-80%
D.) 60-70%

Get the Correct ANSWER

70-80%


Question: A carbonated drink is absorbed slower by the body because the carbonation.
A.) TRUE
B.) FALSE

Get the Correct ANSWER

FALSE


Question: If the driver drinks a carbonated alcohol beverage, the effects will be faster, as the alcohol is absorbed sooner and on the way to the brain.
A.) TRUE
B.) FALSE

Get the Correct ANSWER

TRUE

EXPLANATION: Carbonation speeds up the absorption of alcohol into the bloodstream. The greater the concentration, the faster the absorption. Water and juice (Mixers) mixed with alcohol slows absorption for a lower BAC, carbonated beverages like soft drinks speed up absorption for a higher BAC.


Question: _______ tend/s to speed up the absorption of alcohol.
A.) Fruit Juice
B.) Water
C.) Carbonated Beverages

Get the Correct ANSWER

Carbonated Beverages


Question: __________ can speed up alcohol absorption.
What can speed up alcohol absorption?
blank can speed up alcohol absorption.
A.) Strong emotions
B.) Caffeine
C.) Carbonation

Get the Correct ANSWER

Carbonation


Question: A carbonated alcoholic drink is absorbed faster by the body because of the carbonation.
A.) TRUE
B.) FALSE

Get the Correct ANSWER

TRUE


Question: Within __________ minutes after a drink is consumed, all of the alcoholic content has probably been absorbed into the body.
A.) 10 to 20
B.) 60 to 90
C.) 20 to 60
D.) 90 to 100

Get the Correct ANSWER

20 to 60 minutes

EXPLANATION: After absorption, the alcohol enters the bloodstream and dissolves in the water of the blood. The blood carries the alcohol throughout the body. The alcohol from the blood then enters and dissolves in the water inside each tissue of the body (except fat tissue; alcohol cannot dissolve in fat). Once inside the tissues, alcohol exerts its effects on the body. The observed effects depend directly on the Blood Alcohol Concentration (B.A.C.) , which is related to the amount of alcohol consumed. The B.A.C. can rise significantly within 20 minutes after having a drink.


Question: Alcohol does not need to be digested in order to be absorbed by the body.
A.) TRUE
B.) FALSE

Get the Correct ANSWER

TRUE


Question: __________ is one of many factors that can determine the rate of alcohol absorption.
A.) Temperature of beverage
B.) Food
C.) Age
D.) Time

Get the Correct ANSWER

Food


Question: Using __________ as a mixer with alcohol speeds up the absorption of alcohol.
A.) Water
B.) Juice
C.) Soft drinks
D.) Anything

Get the Correct ANSWER

Soft drinks

EXPLANATION: Carbonation speeds up the absorption of alcohol into the bloodstream. The greater the concentration, the faster the absorption. Water and juice (Mixers) mixed with alcohol slows absorption for a lower BAC, carbonated beverages like soft drinks speed up absorption for a higher BAC.


Question: Alcohol touches every major part of your body within how many minutes
A.) One minute
B.) Five minutes
C.) One seconds
D.) Two minutes

1 ounce (1 drink)


Question: Drinking champagne or mixing drinks with carbonated beverages will speed the absorption of alcohol into the body.
A.) TRUE
B.) FALSE

Get the Correct ANSWER

TRUE

EXPLANATION: Carbonation speeds up the absorption of alcohol into the bloodstream. The greater the concentration, the faster the absorption. Water and juice (Mixers) mixed with alcohol slows absorption for a lower BAC, carbonated beverages like soft drinks speed up absorption for a higher BAC. Carbonated alcoholic beverages, such as champagne, hit the bloodstream and brain much more quickly than non-carbonated drinks.
