A Brief On Biological Thermodynamics for Human Physiology.
The metabolism process under the light of energy exchange and exergetic performance is reviewed, and the role of the subject in understanding and combating diseases are highlighted.
Performance analysis of human respiratory system based on the second law of thermodynamics.
With the controlled supply of O2, the efficiency of the human respiratory performance increases with the decrease in O2 percentage, and due to partial oxidation of glucose at a reduced O2 level, exergy input from the metabolic reaction is less leading to increased exergetic efficiency.
