Homework Help: physics

Posted by anonymous on Wednesday, April 18, 2012 at 10:32am.

A person's body is producing energy internally due to metabolic processes. If the body loses more energy than metabolic processes are generating, its temperature will drop. If the drop is severe, it can be life-threatening. Suppose a person is unclothed and energy is being lost via radiation from a body surface area of 1.51 m2, which has a temperature of 35.6 C and an emissivity of 0.720. Suppose that metabolic processes are producing energy at a rate of 130 J/s. What is the temperature (in C) of the coldest room in which this person could stand and not experience a drop in body temperature? Do not enter unit.

I know, I know. I am posting another question. we have hw on the stuff before we learn it so it's confusing.
