For human with 75 kg of mass (for instance)...
Total (fully rested) potential energy?
Power (J/s) for digestion?
Power for minimal life processes?
Power for standard brain activity (thinking)?
Power for all out sprint?
Power for a single complete (maximal) inhalation?
Any other you can think of?
Is there a good book on this subject?
