Walking / Running Calories Burned Based on MET

Walking / Running Calories Burned Based on MET

by C. D. Chester

Using previous data from my article on MET Values to accurately calculate caloric burn (based on weight and other values) I have produced these formulas and respective calculator. Formulas were created using Quadratic Regression Analysis and produced a 0.99+ correlation to the raw data.

begin{aligned}
Psi : - : Weight : (lb) : , :
Phi : - : MPH : , :
theta : - : Time : (min) : , :
zeta : - : MET
end{aligned}
begin{aligned}
zeta : (W)=0.60952381(Phi)^2-2.40952381(Phi)+5.2 approx 0.61(Phi)^2-2.41(Phi)+5.2
end{aligned}
begin{aligned}
zeta : (R)=0.058898189(Phi)^2+0.46431148(Phi)+4.36464498 approx 0.06(Phi)^2+0.47(Phi)+4.37
end{aligned}
begin{aligned}
Calories : Burned approx (0.008)(Psi)(theta)(respective : zeta)
end{aligned}
