BW

The two-character ISO 3166 country code for BOTSWANA.

BW

1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for the Republic of Botswana. This is the code used in international transactions to and from Botswanan bank accounts.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for Botswana. This is used as an international standard for shipping to Botswana. Each district has its own code with the prefix "BW." For example, the code for the Central District is ISO 3166-2:BW-CE.

1] pace was significantly smaller at 0% BWS compared to 20% BWS (p = 0.
2] relationships at the different levels of BWS showed slopes ([DELTA]V[O.
The first hypothesis, that the metabolic cost of running would decrease as BWS increased, was supported, as there was a significant decrease in metabolic cost across levels of BWS.
The second hypothesis--that the decrease in metabolic cost would be attenuated with greater BWS was supported, and can be seen in Figure 1.
As BWS increased from 0% to 20% to 40%, the slopes of the equations of the lines decreased from 12 to 8 to 7 ml x [kg.
Explanations for the present study's finding can be found in a number of previous pieces of research that have looked at the effects of BWS on the metabolic cost of running.
Finally, the increased variability seen in both the 20% and 40% BWS conditions amongst the subjects warrants further discussion.
Some participants had certainly spent more time on the device than others, which may have exaggerated the differences in running economy while running with BWS compared to without.
2] from BWS and velocity was based on a certain range of BWS (20-40% BWS) and speeds (8 min x [mile.
