Compare the amount of cooling experienced by an individual who drinks 400mL of water (0 degrees C) with the amount of cooling experienced by an individual who sweats out 400 mL of water at 37 degrees Celsius. Assume all sweat evaporates. The density of water is 1.00 g/mL; the specific heat of water is 4.18J/g degrees C; the heat of vaporization of water is 2.41kJ at 37 degrees C.

Solution Summary

In this exercise, students are asked to calculate the enthalpy involved in warming 0C water to 37C (by drinking water) and the enthalpy involved in sweating and evaporating the same amount of water, given the volume, density, specific heat, and the heat of vaporization of water at 37C.

OSHA and Working in Temperature Extremes

Hazards of temperature extremes.
Visit the OSHA website www.osha.gov and find the section of the standard which covers working in extreme temperature (heat and cold). Please post that you have you have read the above standard with your paper below; however, test questions will come from this section of the OSHA standard.

Perform a "Google" search using "working in temperature extremes" as your search item. Select one of the websites and read through the information. In one-half page or more, tell me how you would instruct a worker to protect himself/herself in EITHER high heat conditions or extreme cold situations. Be sure to include the website address as the source in your report.
