Homework Help: physics!

Posted by alex on Tuesday, May 22, 2012 at 11:45pm.

while running a marathon, alex is producing about 900 calories per hour. 1 calorie is 4184 j. if the specific heat of the human body is 3500 j/kg x c, how many degrees celsius would alexs temperature increase if he did not sweat and ran the marathon in 3 h and 10 min? he has a mass of 75 kg.

thank god for sweat. if alex wants to release all of the caloric energy he produced so he doesnt heat up, how many litres of sweat would he need to produce and evaporate? the heat of vaporization for the water in sweat is 2.26 x 10^6 j/kg. the density of water is 1 g/ml
