Problem 76PE

Unreasonable Results (a) What is the temperature increase of an 80.0 kg person who consumes 2500 kcal of food in one day with 95.0% of the energy transferred as heat to the body? (b) What is unreasonable about this result? (c) Which premise or assumption is responsible?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 76PE

a) =360 c

This say body of the person is 370 C = 730  C

b)  Any Temperature increase greater then 30 C

Would be unreasonably large . In this case the temperature of

person would rise to  730 C (1630 F)

c)  The assumption that the body retain 95% of the energy  as the body heat

Is unreasonable ,Most of the food consumed on a day  is converted to body heat

Lossing energy by sweating  and breathing etc.
