The physical activity level are defined for a non-pregnant, non-lactating adult as that person’s total energy expenditure (TEE) in a 24-hour period, divided by his or her basal metabolic rate (BMR):

Random information on the term “ERGS”:

The erg is a unit of energy and work equal to 10−7 joules. It originated in the centimetre–gram–second (CGS) system of units. It has the symbol erg. The erg is not an SI unit. Its name is derived from ergon (ἔργον), a Greek word meaning work or task.

An erg is the amount of work done by a force of one dyne exerted for a distance of one centimeter. In the CGS base units, it is equal to one gram centimeter-squared per second-squared (g⋅cm2/s2). It is thus equal to 10−7 joules or 100 nanojoules (nJ) in SI units. An erg is approximately the amount of work done (or energy consumed) by one common house caterpillar performing one “push up”, the leg-bending dip that brings its mouth to the surface on which it stands and back up.

In 1864, Rudolf Clausius proposed the Greek word ἐργον (ergon) for the unit of energy, work and heat. In 1873, a committee of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, including British physicists James Clerk Maxwell and William Thomson recommended the general adoption of the centimetre, the gramme, and the second as fundamental units (C.G.S. System of Units). To distinguish derived units, they recommended using the prefix “C.G.S. unit of …” and requested that the word erg or ergon be strictly limited to refer to the C.G.S. unit of energy.
