Imagine that a hypothetical life form is discovered on our moon and transported to Earth. On a hot day, this life form begins to sweat, and it is determined that the heat of vaporization of its sweat is 215 cal/g. The scientist observing the extraterrestrial life form also begins to sweat. The heat of vaporization of the scientist\'s sweat is 580 cal/g at the skin\'s surface. If both the extraterrestrial life form and the scientist lose 481 g of sweat over the course of one hour, calculate the heat lost by each body from the vaporization of sweat.
