I use a digital pedometer which has pace counting gigure.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Four items are displayed:

Pace number , pace number by mile, kilometer as well as consumed calories.

I need help in finding out :

1. What is the relationship between distance in kilometers and calories burnt?

2.While the pedometer calculates for walking type of pace, how do I convert it to calories in case I am climbing uphill? Where should the energy expended in moving against gravity has to be considered and what is the equation one should use?
