It is probably a typo. If you look at what they're trying to achieve, it becomes quite obvious. conversationFactor = CaloriesPerKilometer / stepCountMile; This is clearly trying to get a factor (As per the name, good job captain obvious!) The next step is to figure out how many calories are burned. CaloriesBurned = numSteps * conversationFactor; ...

There is a simple general formula to calculate BMR (calories you burn per day without exercise). It is rather accurate as long as you are not far from "average" person. Eg very lean, very muscular, very obese: English BMR Formula Women: BMR = 655 + ( 4.35 x weight in pounds ) + ( 4.7 x height in inches ) - ( 4.7 x age in years ) Men: BMR = 66 + ( 6.23 x ...

No. There are formulas for estimating basal metabolic rate (BMR) and total daily energy expenditure (TDEE). For exercises like walking or running you could estimate the calories burned based on measured performance data. Say, you have height, weight, sex, distance traveled and the time for this, as well as a measurement of burned calories, then those first ...
