Problem

The physical fitness of athletes is measured by “VO2 max,” which is the maximum volume of oxygen consumed by an individual during incremental exercise (for example, on a treadmill). An average male has a VO2 max of 45 mL O2>kg body mass/min, but a world-class male athlete can have a VO2 max reading of 88.0 mL O2>kg body mass/min. (a) Calculate the volume of oxygen, in mL, consumed in 1 hr by an average man who weighs 85 kg and has a VO2 max reading of 47.5 mL O2>kg body mass/min.
