Hvilepuls, peakflow, styrke og fedtprocent

Formålet med denne rapport er at undersøge sammenhængen mellem køn. Vi lavede forskellige øvelser hvor vi målte vores puls, peakflow, fingerstyrke og fedtprocent.
Under forsøgene brugte vi apparater til at måle de forskellige styrker og svagheder. vi undersøgte fysiologiske kønsforskelle, her brugte vi et hånddynamometer, en ”fedtprocentmåler”, en peakflowmåler og et stopur til brug ved pulsmålinger.
Ved forsøget om at finde ud af hvor ...view middle of the document...

Altså har begge køn, begge slags kønshormoner, det ene dominerer bare over det andet, alt efter hvilket køn individet er. Det er også i kønskirtlerne henholdsvis ægceller og sædceller, produceres, oplagres og frigives når modnet. I æggestokkene og testiklerne findes også kønshormonerne, hvor de overordnede er: LH, FSH og GnRH. Sammen med FSH sørger LH - hos kvinder, signalerer hormonet ægløsning, mens det i mænd stimulerer cellernes produktion af testosteron. Det at kvinder besidder mere østrogen og mindre testosteron, gør også at kvinder er mindre bygget end mænd og det omvendte med mænd. Derfor er mænd også stærkere end kvinder, da de producerer mere testosteron (det mandlige kønshormon), der frembringer de mandlige karaktertræk – som især store/synlige muskler, hårvækst i f.eks. ansigtet, stemmelejets udvikling osv.
Det er nødvendigt for manden at have en større lungefunktion, fordi han har flere celler, der kræver ilt til at udvinde energien af føden. Manden må derfor også have et større hjerte, som kan transportere
Gennem forsøget med fingerstyrke, havde jeg klart forventet at drengene ville være de stærkeste. Dette var min forventning eftersom kvinder ikke har de samme hormonelle betingelser for muskelvækst som mænd. Derudover var min forventning også at pigernes fedtprocent ville ligge højere end drengenes, eftersom kvinder generelt ligger på 25 % fedt og mænd på kun 12 %. Jeg havde ikke forventet en forskel på hverken peakflowøvelsen eller pulsøvelsen.
Resultater og beregninger
for kvinder er den generelle fingerstyrke på 25-30 kg, samt for mænd 45-50 kg. I klassen passede pigerne ind på skalaen, med 28,45 kg i gennemsnit. Det gjorde drengene ikke rigtigt, med kun 36,85 kg gennemsnitligt – lidt under den generelle.
Drengenes gennemsnitlige muskelstyrke fratrukket pigernes: 36,85-28,45 = 8,4 kg

Peakflow: for kvinder vil den gennerelle peakflow ligge på 385-420, hvor den for mænd gennemsnitligt vil ligge på 485-535. For klassen lå den gennemsnitlige pige på; 378,75 og for drengene 483,75.
Drengenes gennemsnitlige peakflow fratrukket pigernes: 378,75- 483,75 = 105 til forskel.
Fedtprocent: for kvinder er den gennemsnitlige fedtprocent på 25 % og i klassen på 29%. For drenge er den generelle fedtprocent på 12 %, samt for klassen 15,55%.
Drengenes gennemsnitlige fedtprocent fratrukket pigernes: 29-15,55= 13.45 i forskel.

Hvilepuls: generelt for kvinder: 80, for mænd: 60. I klassen for piger: 67,25 og for drenge 61,5– for pigerne var den altså ret lav, samt for drengene lidt højere end gennemsnittet.
Drengenes gennemsnitlige hvilepuls fratrukket pigernes: 67,25- 61,5=5.75 til forskel
