I'm developing a school project (I'm studying software engineering) and it's about a sharing bicycles company. We need to calculate the total amount of necessary energy to travel from one point to another and the amount of k/calories burned by the user.
I need some help calculating the amount of kilocalories. I have these values as an example:
- User + bicycle = 85kg
- Distance: 1000m
- Inclination: 10%
- Duration: 180 seconds
- Speed: (around) 5.5 m/s
- Rolling resistance (coefficient): 0.004
- 1 kcal = 4186.8 J
My main problem is that the amount of kilocalories given by my calculations is around 334, which is huge.
