Question
Air in human lungs has a temperature of $37.0^\circ\textrm{C}$ and a saturation vapor density of $44.0 \textrm{ g/m}^3$. (a) If 2.00 L of air is exhaled and very dry air inhaled, what is the maximum loss of water vapor by the person? (b) Calculate the partial pressure of water vapor having this density, and compare it with the vapor pressure of $6.31 \times 10^3 \textrm{ N/m}^2$ .
1. $8.80 \times 10^{-2} \textrm{ g}$
2. $6.30 \times 10^3 \textrm{ N/m}^2$
