You may assume that the specic heat of blood is the same as that for water and that the density of blood is 1. 05 g/cm3. Note that although the core and skin normally differ in temperature by 3to 4C, the blood will not be cooled by that much. Skin temperature will rise during exercise, and the blood must have a

greater temperature than the skin in order to transfer heat to it through vessel walls (conduction). Section 5.5 continued 5.58.
