# Energy expenditure (calories burned) equation for running?

3 min read

##### Asked by: Michael Gil

For example, say you weigh 150 pounds (approximately 68 kg) and you are running at 7 mph, which has a MET value of 11.5. The formula would work as follows: **11.5 × 3.5 × 68/200 = 13.69 calories per minute**. If you run for 30 minutes, you will burn about 410 calories.

## How do you calculate calories burned while running?

**Your weight, running distance and speed have the biggest impact on how many calories you burn running**. For example about 155 calories per mile are burned for an 200 pound person running at 10 min mile pace and 100 calories per mile are burned for a 130 pound person at the same jogging pace.

## How do you calculate caloric energy expenditure?

**There are two separate formulas for men and women:**

- For women – BMR = 655.1 + (9.563 * weight in kg) + (1.850 * height in cm) – (4.676 * age) .
- For men – BMR = 66.5 + (13.75 * weight in kg) + (5.003 * height in cm) – (6.75 * age) .

## How do you calculate energy for running?

Body mass can be used to predict energy expenditure with reasonable accuracy when running on a firm level surface (road, track or grass). **The number of calories required to run 1 km equals your weight in kg** (a runner of 78 kg will burn 78 Calories/km).

## How do you calculate energy expenditure during exercise?

Energy expenditure can be estimated by **measuring macronutrient or oxygen consumption, or heat production or carbon dioxide production**. Most measurement approaches in use today involve the measurement of oxygen consumption and/or production of carbon dioxide via indirect calorimetry.

## How do you calculate calories burned from VO2?

**Formulas for Determination of Calorie Burn if VO2max is Known**

- Male: ((-95.7735 + (0.634 x HR) + (0.404 x VO2max ) + (0.394 x W) + (0.271 x A))/4.184) x 60 x T.
- Female: ((-59.3954 + (0.45 x HR) + (0.380 x VO2max ) + (0.103 x W) + (0.274 x A))/4.184) x 60 x T.

## How do you calculate VO2 energy expenditure?

**VO2= (10.8 x watts) / M (wt.** **in kg) + (7)**

- To calculate the energy expenditure of a 62 kg woman cycling at a work rate of 450 kgm.min:
- VO2= (1.8 x 450)/ 62 + 7.
- VO2= 810/62 + 7.
- VO2= 13 + 7.
- VO2= 20 ml/kg/min.

## How many calories are burned when you run a mile?

A general estimate for calories burned in one mile is approximately **100 calories per mile**, says Dr.

## How much energy is expended during exercise?

Energy Expenditure during Exercise

Physical activity has a large effect on total human energy expenditure, and contributes **20-30%** to the body’s total energy output. The amount of energy expended for different activities will vary with the intensity and type of exercise.

## What is physical activity energy expenditure?

Physical activity energy expenditure (PAEE), **the energy expended during body movement**. Diet-induced energy expenditure (also known as the thermic effect of food), which is associated with digestion, absorption and storage of food.

## What are the 3 components of energy expenditure?

2 Total energy expenditure (TEE) is the energy required by the organism daily and it is determined by the sum of 3 components: **basal energy expenditure (BEE), diet- induced thermogenesis (DIT) and physical activity (PA)**.

## What are the 4 components of energy expenditure?

Total energy expenditure (TEE) consists of four components, i.e., **the sleeping metabolic rate (SMR), the energy cost of arousal, the thermic effect of food or diet-induced energy expenditure (DEE), and the energy cost of physical activity or AEE**.
