  • Thus the half-life, under these circumstances, is proportional to[dubious - discuss] the initial concentration of the drug A0 and inversely proportional to the zero-order rate constant k0 where: t 1 2 = 0.5 A 0 k 0 {\displaystyle t_{\frac {1}{2}}={\frac {0.5A_{0}}{k_{0}}}\,} This process[clarification needed] is usually a logarithmic process - that is, a constant proportion of the agent is eliminated per unit time.
