metabolic
rate
 simply
 by
 measuring
 her
 rate
 of
 oxygen
 consumption.
 
 In
 contrast,
 the
 CO2/O2
 ratios
 are
 different
 for
 the
 different
 food
 groups;
 this
 circumstance
 allows
 us
 to
 estimate
what
is
actually
being
used
as
the
energy
sourcek,
by
comparing
oxygen
 intake
to
carbon
dioxide
output.
 b. An
average
adult
at
rest
uses
about
16
liters
of
O2
per
hour.

The
corresponding
 heat
release
is
called
the
“basal
metabolic
rate”
(BMR).

Find
it,
in
kcal/hour
and
 in
kcal/day.
 c. What
power
output
does
this
correspond
to
in
Watts?
 d. Typically,
 the
 CO2
 output
 rate
 might
 be
 13.4
 liters
 per
 hour.
 
 What,
 if
 anything,
 can
you
say
about
the
type
of
food
materials
being
consumed?
 e. During
 exercise,
 the
 metabolic
