The ‘body mass index’ is used to find the body weight that is appropriate for a person’s height. It is calculated using the formula. I = W (I = W divided by H squared) H 2 Where I is the body mass, W is the person’s weight in kg, and H is the person’s height in metres. If the ...

S.O.S!!! In terms of saving energy, bicycling and walking are far more efficient means of transportation than is travel by automobile. For example, when riding at 15.0 mi/h, a cyclist uses food energy at a rate of about 400 kcal/h above what he would use if he were merely ...

Biomedical measurements show that the arms and hands together typically make up 13.0% of a person's mass, while the legs and feet together account for 37.0% . For a rough (but reasonable) calculation, we can model the arms and legs as thin uniform bars pivoting about the ...
