Where was the first exercise physiology laboratory in the United States established?
The gold standard (i.e. the most valid and reliable way) for determining body composition in humans is the skinfold thickness technique.
Exercise physiology is the study of
acute and chronic bodily responses to physical activity
The principle of overload means that the training intensity must be greater than normally experienced.
Exercise physiology, biomechanics, sport history, and motor learning are examples of the subdisciplines of kinesiology.
The risk of heat illness during physical activity increases as air temperature and humidity increase.
People in the United States are commonly deficient in this nutrient, which can result in a decrease in fitness due to reduced oxygen-carrying capabilities.
A 1996 government publication that played an important part in describing the relationship between physical activity and health was called
Physical Activity and Health: A Report of the Surgeon General
All of the following are considered characteristics of health-related physical fitness EXCEPT
What type of muscle fiber uses anaerobic energy systems almost exclusively?
Which of the following statements best describes the physical activity patterns of most people?
They are much less physically active than is required to maintain good health.
When body temperature rises during physical activity, which thermoregulatory response is stimulated?
This kinesiologist was one of the first to contribute to the field of exercise physiology with his Nobel Prize-winning work on metabolism.
One of the most common reasons for stopping an exercise training program is injury.
What nutrient makes up 55 to 60 percent of the human body?
Which of the following best defines exercise?
physical activity performed to improve the performance, health, or appearance of your body
Treadmills, cycles, and swimming flumes are used to estimate VO2max. What are these devices called?

A microscope has an eyepiece of focal length 2.00 cm and an objective of focal length 3.00 cm. The eyepiece produces a virtual image at the viewer's near point (25.0 cm from the eye). (a) How far from the eyepiece is the image formed by the objective? (b) If the lenses are 20.0 cm apart, what is the distance from objective lens to the object being viewed? (c) What is the angular magnification?
Which of the areas of the Moon—the bright highlands or the dark maria—are more heavily cratered? The ____ are more heavily cratered.
A balanced three-phase Y source has a line voltage of 208 V rms. The total power delivered to the balanced $\Delta$ load is 1200 W with a power factor of 0.94 lagging. Determine the required load impedance for each phase of the $\Delta$ load. Calculate the resulting line current. The source is a 208-V rms ABC sequence.
