# 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}
