Accepted Solution

A:

Lúcia is using energy at a rate of 420 kcal/h.

To find out the rate per minute we need to transform number:

420 kcal/h = 420 000 cal/h

1h = 60 min

420 000 cal/h = 420 000 cal /(60min) = 7 000 cal / min or 7kcal/min

To find out the rate per minute we need to transform number:

420 kcal/h = 420 000 cal/h

1h = 60 min

420 000 cal/h = 420 000 cal /(60min) = 7 000 cal / min or 7kcal/min
