Question
(a) How many kilograms of water must evaporate from a 60.0-kg woman to lower her body temperature by $0.750^\circ\textrm{C}$? (b) Is this a reasonable amount of water to evaporate in the form of perspiration, assuming the relative humidity of the surrounding air is low?
1. $64.8\textrm{ g}$
2. Yes, this is a reasonable amount of sweat. 64 mL of sweat is much less than a bottle of water that she might drink to stay hydrated.
