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 185 lbs and has a VO2 max reading of 47.5 mL O2>kg body mass/min. (b) If this man lost 20 lb, exercised, and increased his VO2 max to 65.0 mL O2>kg body mass/min, how many mL of oxygen would he consume in 1 hr?
