Dissipation of body heat

  1. Mar 17, 2016 #1
    I'm not sure this is the best fourm to post this, but...

    How much heat, preferably in watts, does perspiration dissipate under mild exertion (i.e. walking) on a 90° F day? Assume the individual is hydrated and not starving. Also assume they weigh 180Lbs.

    How much heat would have to be dissipated to make the person feel comfortable (i.e. as if standing in a 70° F air conditioned building?)
