In exercising, a weight lifter loses 0.100 kg of water through evaporation, the heat required to evaporate the water coming from the weight lifter's body. The work done in lifting weights is 1.30 x 10^5 J.

(a) Assuming that the latent heat of vaporization of perspiration is 2.42 x 10^6 J/kg, find the change in the internal energy of the weight lifter.

(b) Determine the minimum number of nutritional calories of food (1 nutritional calorie = 4186 J) that must be consumed to replace the loss of internal energy.
