I use a digital pedometer which has pace counting gigure. 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?
