Homework Help: chemistry - human calorimeter

Posted by Farah on Sunday, February 27, 2011 at 9:12pm.

From experience, you know that you produce significantly more heat when you are exercising than when you are resting. Scientists can study the heat that is produced by human metabolism reactions using a ‘human calorimeter.’ Based on what you know about calorimetry, how would you design the human calorimeter? What variables would you control and study in an investigation using your calorimeter? Write a brief proposal outlining the design of your human calorimeter and the experimental approach you would take.
