Promille vs BAC: the difference and how much promille is 1 BAC

Promille versus mg/l: het verschil uitgelegd

"Promille" and "bac" are two different ways of measuring blood alcohol levels.

Promille is a unit of concentration used in Europe and other parts of the world. It indicates the blood alcohol level as a fraction of 1000. For example, a promille of 0.05 means that there is 0.05 grams of alcohol per 1 liter of blood.

BAC (Blood Alcohol Concentration) is the standard unit for blood alcohol content in the United States. It indicates the blood alcohol level as a fraction of 100. For example, a BAC of 0.08 means that there are 0.08 grams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood.

To find out how many promille 1 BAC is, you need to convert the two units. A BAC of 0.08 is equivalent to a promille of 0.8. This means that there is 0.8 grams of alcohol per 1 liter of blood.

It is important to note that the legal blood alcohol limit is around 0.05 BAC in many countries, and around 0.08 BAC in some countries.
