The total metabolic cost per unit distance and the net metabolic cost per unit distance (total cost minus the resting cost). The speed that minimizes the total cost is substantially higher than the net cost.

FIG. 2.

Walking on a moving walkway, minimizing the cost per unit distance traveled. (a) Costs for walking at the optimal walking speed and cost for standing still on the walkway. [(b) and (c)] Walking at the optimal speed [Eqs. (5) and (11)] is better than standing still on the walkway at low walkway speeds; standing still is better at higher walkway speeds. The transition for human walking is at about 0.75 m/s. This figure uses values for and from Sec. III B.
