This parallel allowed Rubner to extend the first law of thermodynamics, the law of conservation of energy, to people. The room calorimeter fit Rubner’s concept of the closed system body/machine, in which he could ensure that the total energy of the system remained constant. Rubner had people enter the room calorimeter and perform a variety of tasks for which he measured the output of respiration gases.

In order to determine human metabolism calculations, Atwater used his new technology in conjunction with a bomb calorimeter. The bomb calorimeter allowed Atwater to burn foods to determine their energy values as well as burning the excreted products of the room calorimeter’s human subject. Used together, both apparatuses could measure the body’s energy expenditure as the difference between the food input and human “output” (Wiggen, 1993). The room calorimeter was capable of amazingly precise measurements of human metabolism.
