Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i would appreciate any help i could get on this, thanks.

I'm stuck on part of a biomechanics assignment which is to work out the thermal conductivity of neoprene. I've done this part but am having difficulty on the following question;

"Using the value that you have obtained for thermal conductivity, estimate the heat loss from a person, immersed in water at 10ºC if A) they are wearing a 3mm wetsuit and B) if they are wearing a 5mm wetsuit"

I have the thermal conductivity of the wetsuit but i'm not sure how to work out the heat loss from that and what unit measurement to give the answer.

I'm not saying that i want the question done for me but if you think you know how to do it I'd like a few pointers!

Thanks again.
