A person falls in water at 0 degrees C. After 20 minutes of exposure, they are suffering acute hypothermia, as their core body temperature has dropped to 30.0 degrees C. Assume that a personís heat capacity can be approximated by the heat capacity of water, 4.18 J/g/oC. The energy required to raise the victimís core body temperature to 37.0 degrees C was 675 kcal. What was the mass of the victim?
