How much energy does our body use? How do we keep cool when it is really hot out? Can we justify eating more when studying?
Treating the human body as a thermodynamic system, with food energy going in and heat flow due to radiation, convection, evaporation and conduction, we can see how we can maintain a constant core temperature in a huge variety of environmental conditions.Read More...
