    1)If equal volumes of intestinal juice (pH = 5.4) and plasma (pH = 7.4) were separated by an
    epithelial membrane, what would be the ratio of concentrations (plasma/intestinal juice) achieved
    by an organic acid (pKa = 6.4)? An organic base (pKa = 6.4)?

    2)If a drug has an elimination rate constant (Ke) of 0.3 days-1, how much time is required for
    elimination of 95% of the drug?

    3)A drug has a half-life of 3.5 hours, and a fractional Vd of 0.6 L/kg. If the drug is administered
    by IV infusion to a 65 kg man at a constant rate of 2 mg/min, what will be the steady-state
    plasma concentration? How long will it take to reach 95% of that concentration

    please dont send me the answers only hints in each question
