## How to calculate calories (burned)

The number of calories you burn while exercising is dependent on:

• the exercise you do
• the time spent doing the activity

By multiplying the body weight in kg by the MET (*) value and duration of activity, you can estimate the energy expenditure in Kcal specific to a persons body weight. In this example, playing the cello at a 2.3 MET value, burns 2.3 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual playing the cello for 30 minutes expends the following:

(2.3 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (30 min/60 min) = 80.5 Kcal.

2.3 is the value in METs for playing the cello.
