Defining Work and Power
Work = force x distance
Work (J) = force (N) x distance (m)
Work expressed in joules or newtonmeters
example (from book):
Lift 10 kg up 2 m
1 kg = 9.81 N
10 kg = 98.1 N
so...
wrong units!
kg is mass, we need force
Work = 98.1 N x 2 m
= 196.2 newtonmeters or joules
and sometimes you'll see it this way:
Lift 10 kg up 2 m
10 kg x 2 m = 20 kgm
"kilogram meters"
1 kgm = 9.81 joules
20 kgm = 196.2 joules
so...
Before we move on to power
1 kcal = 4186 J
1 pound of fat = 3500 kcal
so to burn 1 pound of fat by this calculation, you need to do
3500 kcal x 4186 J = 14,651,000 J of work
on top of your normal daily activity
Power =
Time
Work
or
Force x Distance
Time
or
Force x Velocity
For power:
Force is important ( force, power)
Velocity is important ( velocity, power)
Time is important ( time, power)
example:
2 people separately lift a 50 kg weight 1m, 10 times
both people do 4905 J of work
person 1 takes 60 sec to do it
4905 J
60 sec
= 81.75 watts
person 2 only takes 30 sec to do it
4905 J
30 sec
= 163.5 watts
the two people have equal strength, but person 2 is more powerful
there's a difference!

measuring mechanical work/power on a treadmill is complicated
unless there is incline, introducing a vertical component
percent grade
 "amount of vertical rise per 100 units of belt travel"
10% = 10 m rise every 100 m
calculated by multiplying the sine of the treadmill angle by 100

estimate it!
How much energy is required to do a certain amount of work?

it depends on:

x 100
(above rest)
*units must be the same on top and bottom
example:

Resistance = 2 kg

Factors influencing efficiency:
Work rate:
efficiency decreases as work rate increases
Movement speed:
at lower power outputs, lower speed = greater efficiency
at greater power outputs, greater speed = greater efficiency
This also depends on the individual...
e.g. Lance Armstrong vs. Jan Ullrich
~110 rpm
~8590 rpm
Muscle fiber type:
"slow twitch" muscle fibers are more efficient than "fast twitch" muscle fibers
depends on genetics and training
Running Economy:
since you don't normally measure work during flat running, you don't normally measure running efficiency
instead
measure oxygen cost of running at certain speeds
More economical = less O used at a given speed
2
men and women typically have similar running economies, except for at higher speeds
(men become more efficient)
and you know the % nitrogen in the air
Friction braked:
Charles' Law
Boyle's Law
proportional relationship between gas temperature and gas volume
at constant temperature, number of gas molecules in a given volume varies inversely with pressure
what if you want to compare VO2max tests that were collected at different temperatures and/or altitudes?
(which you always do)
