Question

During a brisk run, an adult human generates heat at a rate of about 1350 W. To remove this heat by evaporative cooling, what mass of water per second m/t must be evaporated from the body as sweat? The latent heat of vaporization of water at 37 °C (typical body temperature) is 24.2 × 105 J/kg.
