A clumsy chef is in the kitchen boiling a pot of water. The chef accidentally allows his left hand topass through the steam coming off of the surface of the water. The steam (25 g) burns his hand. While heis trying to relieve the burning, he accidentally sticks his right hand in the boiling water. His hand isburned by 25 grams of water. He notices that his left hand hurts worse than his right hand. As the steamleft the surface of the water it was exactly 100 °C. His skin (before the burns) was 35 °C. Find the heatthat was transmitted to his left hand by the steam as it reached thermal equilibrium with his skin. Find theheat that was transmitted to his right hand by the water as it reached thermal equilibrium with his skin.

For the same value of the heat capacity of the skin, the amount of heat transferred by boiling water forthe same temperature rise of 65 deg C is The effective temperature rise of the skin in that…
