How can the body lose heat?

1 Answer


Through air conduction and convection


The body loses about 2% of its body heat through air conduction. But heat can also be lost due to water, water causes more heat loss than air does. Heat can be lost from the body when it's immersed in cold water
Convection- almost similar to sitting in front of a fan or have cold wind blowing towards you.
