Gaseous polutants emissions from human bodies.
Some typical gaseous emissions from the human body:
- Acetaldehyde: 3.5 10-8 g/h
- Acetone: 4.8 10-7 g/h
- Ammonia: 1.6 10-5 g/h
- Carbon dioxide: 3.2 10-2 g/h
- Carbon monoxide: 1 10-5 g/h
- Hydrogen sulfide: 1.5 10-8 g/h
- Methane: 1.7 10-6 g/h
- Methanol: 6 10-9 g/h
- Toluene: 2.3 10-8 g/h
- 1 g/h = 1 10-3 kg/h = 2.2 10-3 lb/h
- Human physiology, air quality and comfort temperatures, activity and metabolic rates, health effects of carbon monoxide and more.
- Carbon Dioxide emission from persons vs. activity.
- Human metabolism at low and high activity with different levels of clothing.
- Heat energy produced by animals.
- Specific heat of the human body - compared to substances like protein and wood.
- Composition of the human body.
- Human work effort levels vs. energy expenditure and associated heart rates.
- Heat gain from persons in air conditioned spaces - in btu/hr.
- Fresh air is required for respiration and for transport of heat and vapor emitted from the human body.
- Relaxation rest time vs. working time and activity.
- Metabiolic Rate - Met - is used as a measuring unit for human body heat or power production.
- Human metabolic heat gain in air conditioned rooms.
- Room area per person - may be used to calculate typical indoor climate loads.
- Time to exhaustion and death for humans in cold water.
