Blood-alcohol level calculator.

Sample Image


A handy-dandy blood-alcohol calculator. Obviously, this isn't to be used as an accurate measuring device, just rough estimate.


Found a picture here that had a BAC formula, so I coded it for weekend use.

Using the code

Change the values as needed, your estimated BAC will update automagically. Here's the formula, for the curious.

(Number of drinks / 2) * (9 / Weight for Men  OR 7.5 / 
             Weight for Women) - (.016 * Hours Drinking) = BAC

Points of Interest

Setting all controls on the forms' 'value changed' (or equivalent) to the same 'calc()' function made for little code.
