a proportionality factor that relates the amount of drug in the body to the concentration of drug measured in a biological fluid. Volume of distribution
Drugs that have a volume of distribution 7 L or less are thought to be confined to the plasma, or liquid part of the blood.
If the volume is between 7 and 15 L, the drug is thought to be distributed throughout the blood (plasma and red blood cells).
If the volume of distribution is larger than 42, the drug is thought to be distributed to all tissues including and espically fatty tissues
The larger the volume of distribution, the more likely that the drug is found where in the body tissues
