(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

During exercise the body loses 240 W of heat due to the evaporation of sweat. Assuming that the latent heat of at body temprature is 2255 kJ/kg, determine the rate of vaporisation of sweat.

answer = 106 mg/s

2. Relevant equations

L=Q/m

3. The attempt at a solution

What formula do I need to use here? The only formula I can think of is the one with latent heat and heat energy Q=mL. But this formula only gives mass and doesn't give the rate of vaporisation!
