In a case study where the maximal rates of oxygen consumption (in ml/s) for nine species of wild African mammals were plotted against body mass (in kg) in a log-log plot, it was found that the data points fell on a straight line with the slope approximately equal to 0.3 and the vertical axis intercept of approximately 0.101. Find an equation that relates maximal oxygen consumption, r, and body mass, m.
