Question

The human body, while at rest, produces heat energy at a rate of about 117 W. How much sweat (in g) must evaporate every minute from their skin to carry away this excess energy? (Note: according to your book, the latent heat of vaporization of water at body temperature is 2.43 * 106 J/kg).
