A primer for the exercise and nutrition sciences : thermodynamics, bioenergetics, metabolism

Author: Christopher B Scott
Publisher: Totowa, NJ : Springer, ©2008.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Presents a fresh approach to the study of energy expenditure by introducing various concepts in open system thermodynamics and cellular to whole-body energy exchange. This text traces biological energy exchange, from the molecules in the food we eat to the energy demands of rest, physical exertion and its recovery.
