Q: 33. Evaporation of (sweat) water is an essential mechanism in human beings for maintaining normal body temperature. For human beings, heat of vaporization of water at a body temperature of 37 °C is nearly 2.3 MJ/kg and specific heat capacity s 3.5 kJ/ (kg.K). On consuming a certain prescribed diet, the body temperature of an athlete of mass 82 kg is expected to increase by 2 °C in order to prevent this, be drinks N bottles of mineral water (250 ml water in each) at 37 °C. Assume that the entire amount of this water is given out as sweat, which vaporizes N is nearly (density of water = 1000 kg. )

(B) 2

(C) 3

(D) 4

Answer: (B)
