Principles and problems of human energy exchange

L. Garby, Poul S. Larsen

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


The principles and laws that determine the relations between observed quantities in experiments on human energy exchange are described in terms of classical thermodynamics applied to an open system. It is suggested that adherence to such a description will help avoid ambiguities and imprecision in analysis of the data. The description suggests a framework within which the control aspects of the system can be profitably analyzed.
