The authors consider the convergecast problem in wireless sensor networks where readings generated by each sensor node are to reach the sink. Since a sensor reading can usually be encoded in a few bytes, more than one reading can readily fit into a standard transmission packet. They assume that any such packet consumes one unit of energy every time it hops from a node to a neighbor regardless of the total size of the readings in it.
