In an experiment on the specific heat of a metal, a 0.20 kg block of the metal at $$150^{\circ}\mathrm{C}$$ is dropped in a copper calorimeter (of water equivalent of 0.025 kg) containing 150 $$c m^{3}$$ of water at $$27^{\circ}\mathrm{C}$$. The final temperature is $$40^{\circ}\mathrm{C}$$. The specific heat of the metal will be: (Heat   losses   to   the   surroundings   are   negligible)
1. $$0 . 40 ~ \text{Jg}^{- 1} \text{K}^{- 1}$$

2. $$0 . 43 ~ \text{Jg}^{- 1} \text{K}^{- 1}$$
3. $$0 . 54 ~ \text{Jg}^{- 1} \text{K}^{- 1}$$
4. $$0 . 61 ~ \text{Jg}^{- 1} \text{K}^{- 1}$$

A child of mass 30 kg running at a temperature of 101°F is given an antipyrin (i.e. medicine that lowers fever) which causes an increase in the rate of evaporation of sweat from his body. If the fever is brought down to 98 °F in 20 min, what is the average rate of extra evaporation caused, by the drug?

[Assume the evaporation mechanism to be the only way by which heat is lost. The mass of the child is 30 kg. The specific heat of the human body is approximately the same as that of water, and the latent heat of evaporation of water at that temperature is about 580 cal ${g}^{-1}$.]
