Cylinder Model

The relation between dose rate, drug clearance and plasma concentration is illustrated by the cylinder model.

Dose rate is represented by tap flow, drug clearance by outlet size, and plasma concentration by the height of the water column.

Adjust the tap flow, and the size of the outlet to see what happens to the height of the water column.
