Transcript of Module1 Homeostasis and Thermoregulation

Term Project 1:Thermoregulation and Homeostasis

* Thermoregulation is the process that allows the human body to maintain its core internal temperature.

* Hemeostasis is a process in which the body's internal environment is kept stable, despite changes in external conditions.

Presentation outline

Many factors affect the human body temperature such as:

1) Change in work.
2) Different specific heat capacity.
3) Different conduction.

Change in work
#What is BMR?!
#Used Equations:
- Women: BMR = 655 + ( 9.6 x weight in kilos ) + ( 1.8 x height in cm ) - ( 4.7 x age in years )

- Men: BMR = 66 + ( 13.7 x weight in kilos ) + ( 5 x height in cm ) - ( 6.8 x age in years )

Changing the heat capacity:
 Discussion:
# the temperature divers on the 37 C.

# Our hypothesis and assumptions were proved correctly.

# Our model lack of accuracy.

Our Question is:”
Is there a relation between temperature and exercising to lose weight?

Data collection:
1) Work
Cal (t) vs. Temp (C)

2) Heat capacity
Capacity (t) vs. Temp (C)

3) Conduction
Conduction (t) vs. Temp (C)

The original simulink (by the instructor)
* What is the heat capacity?
* How did we change the heat capacity in the model?
* What is conduction?
* How did we change conduction in the model?
Change in Conduction
• It helped us to have a deep aspect and knowledge to describe a system behavior.

• Some other constants may change and other factors may vary during this process and we are not taking them into consideration.

• The changes in the constants may be inaccurate.

• This model showed that we can predict any changes during the process.

• It showed how the body temperature is one of the reasons behind losing weight.

# We would have considered surface area of the body as one of the parameter that needs to be changed to determine our hypothesis.

# We would have made experiments on people instead of assuming constants regarding the BMR.
