compensation point

n
(Botany) botany the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide at which the rate of carbon dioxide uptake by a photosynthesizing plant is exactly balanced by its rate of carbon dioxide release in respiration and photorespiration

2], PWC at the rating of perceived exertion threshold (PWC-RpE), electromyography (EMG) fatigue threshold (EMG-FT), and the respiratory compensation point (RCP) have been used to differentiate fatiguing from non-fatiguing work (13, 14, 20), demarcate the exercise intensity (moderate, heavy, and severe) domains (3, 4, 14, 15, 22, 23, 26, 35), identify the onset of metabolic acidosis (10, 29), prescribe exercise intensity (1, 8), and examine the mechanisms associated with neuromuscular fatigue (18, 20, 37).
