Effects of Different Exercises on The Human Body

Posted on: 17 August 2009

In this week practical, we are investigating the effects of different exercises on the human body. Our subject in this experiment is Vanessa, one of our team members and the exercise assigned to us is to walk up and down the stairs. We measure the breathing rate, heart rate, body temperature and the oxygen concentration before the experiment started. Then, Vanessa walked up and down the stairs for 1 minute before we measure the breathing rate, heart rate, body temperature and the oxygen concentration again, we did this 4 more times, and also record the data for 5 more minutes while cooling down.

ANALYSIS AND SYNTHESIS OF EXPERIMENT
