The effect of caffeine on the body

Q4 Algebra benchmark


Caffeine is a crystalline compound that is found especially in tea and coffee plants and is a stimulant of the central nervous system.

Caffeine easy passes through body membranes so from the first sip the caffeine is entering your bloodstream through the lining of your mouth, throat, and stomach. It only takes 45 minutes for 99% of the caffeine to be absorbed through these membranes. It takes five to six hours for half of a caffeine to leave the body. for example, if you had a 10 ounce cup of coffee at 7 a.m that contain 250 mg of caffeine, by 1 p.m it will reduce to 125. it takes 1.15 day for a caffeine to completely leave your body.

An exponential function can be use to represent the amount of caffeine, Example: F(x)= a-b^X F(x)= the amount of caffeine.



The effect of caffeine

As soon as the caffeine enters the body it is already being metabolized by the liver and broken down into theophylline, theobromine, and paraxanthine.

From there these chemicals travel throughout the body where they affect various body functions
