In a hot day’s race, a bicyclist consumes 8.0 L of water over the span of four hours. Making the approximation that all of the cyclist’s energy goes into evaporating this water as sweat, how much energy in kcal did the rider use during the ride? (Since the efficiency of the rider is only about 20%, most of the energy consumed does go to heat, so our approximation is not far off.)
