water has one of the largest specific heats of any substance. why is it important for human body?

  • chemistry - ,

    It takes a lot of heat to raise the temperature of water. Water is perhaps 80% or so of the human body (I don't know the exact number) which means our temperature is easily maintained without high highs and low lows; i.e. the swing is not very large at all.
