How to change width of single column of table?

hello I have created table in a PDF file using iText. The heading of my table columns are "Medicine Name", "Doses", and "time: This is what my columns look like:

|Medicin|Doses|time|
| e name|     |    |
As you can see the word "Medicine" is split into "Medicin" and "e". I want to avoid this by changing the width of the first column, but I don't know how to do that.

The ColumnWidths example demonstrates different ways of changing the width of a column. Note that the way we create tables in iText 7 differs from the iText 5. PdfPTable class doesn’t exist anymore. This is one specific way:

Table table = new Table(new float[]{2, 1, 1});

Now the width of the first column is double the size of the second and third column.
