    b. Heat radiation can take place across a vacuum.
    c. A perfect radiating surface has an emissivity (e) = 1.
    d. A perfect heat insulator has an emissivity (e) = 0.
    e. Water is a better heat insulator than air.

    Which of the following statements is false? Heat loss mechanism is done
    a. By increasing conduction and radiation from the skin

    Choose one answer.
    a. 10 oC.
    b. 12 oC
    c. 14 oC.
    d. 16 oC
    e. 18 oC

    b. convection
    c. conduction and convection.
    d. radiation.
    e. None of the above

    Which of the following is true?
    a. Thermoregulatory system acts to facilitate heat loss in hot environment.
    b. Thermoregulatory system acts to facilitate heat loss in cold environment.
    c. Thermoregulatory system acts to facilitate heat gain in hot environment.
    d. Thermoregulatory system acts to increases metabolism in hot environment.
    e. Thermoregulatory system acts to decreases metabolism in cold environment.

    Are all my answers are correct ?
