# Use R=8.3 J/mol-K wherever required. The human body has an average temperature of 98℉.

Question:

Use $\mathrm{R}=8.3 \mathrm{~J} / \mathrm{mol}-\mathrm{K}$ wherever required.

The human body has an average temperature of $98^{\circ} \mathrm{F}$. Assume that vapour pressure of the blood in the veins behaves like that of pure water. Find the minimum atmospheric pressure which is necessary to prevent the blood from boiling. Use figure of the text for the vapour pressures.

Solution:
