Lecture 29 Heat Exchange 1. Metabolism - always gain heat 2. Radiation - All things above absolute 0 radiate heat - Either gain or lose heat - Basking (expose yourself to the sun by exposing the cross sectional parts of the body), Shade (reduce cross sectional parts exposed to the sun to reduce heat loss) 3. Conduction - Temperature effected by touching something from another surface that has a different - Neither gain or lose heat - Depends on the area of contact, one of the surface passes heat well or not, and if delta t is similar heat won’t be exchanged. 4. Convection - involves the bulk flow of hot particles into cooler temperatures (water or air). - Neither gain or loose heat - Deals with velocity as well 5. Evaporation - as water changes from a liquid phase to a gaseous phase, it will vaporize and remove heat from the creature. - Always loose heat. - Takes energy to evaporate liquid to gas to cool you off. Endotherms- most of the heat is being regulated by metabolism Ectotherms- conformers; they will use external temperatures to control their internal environments. They use high volume ratio to heat their bodies in the morning for the day. Heterotherms- creatures that can switch between the two types of strategies depending on the environment. Example: honey bees, use compartments to regulate body temperature Mass vs Metabolic rate - bigger animals have a higher metabolic rate. - Mass specific metabolic rate is mass at a specific metabolic rate. Liters of oxygen inhaled per mass. - Relatively small, big surface area, can loose heat easy. Metabolic rate needs to stay jacked up.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
