Cycle on a mechanically braked arm cycle ergometer for 5 minutes with a load of 1.25 kp and a metronome setting of 50 revolutions /min. Assume that the oxygen cost for this work was 20.5 ml/kg/min. Also assume that your resting energy expenditure is 1 Met (i.e., 3.5 ml/kg/min).
Determine your GrossMechanical Efficiency and NET Mechanical Efficiency for this exercise.
Hint: first determine kpM/min; then change exercise and resting VO2ml/kg/mininto ml/minthen into kcal/min; (Note: 200 ml O2 = 1 kcal);
