To use this table one may seek the basal metabolism of the individual, add 10 per cent.
This measurement represents the basal metabolism of a man at complete rest, when his oxidative activities are at their lowest ebb.
Ratios of measured to predicted values were used for basal metabolism (Hbr) and minimum wet thermal conductance (Cmwr).
Benedict and Emmes have shown by very careful measurements that the basal metabolism of men is about 6% higher than that of women.
It has been found by DuBois that the basal metabolism in boys of twelve is 25 per cent.
basal metabolism n.
The minimum amount of energy required to maintain vital functions in an organism at complete rest, measured by the basal metabolic rate in a fasting individual.
