Summer time usually means longer days and if you live close to the equator you know about the 100+ degree weather that comes with it. Without the proper precautions you could easily fall to heat exhaustion or far worse a heat stroke. Athletes are more prone to this type of sudden illnesses because of the constant running and exercise they do on a daily basis, but people that work in construction, delivery drivers, landscaping, farmers and other occupations that are required to be outside for long periods of time are also prone to heat exhaustion and heatstroke.

Heat exhaustion also called heat prostration is a condition characterized by faintness, rapid pulse, nausea, profuse sweating, cool skin, and collapse, caused by prolonged exposure to heat accompanied by loss of adequate fluid and salt from the body. Heat exhaustion happens when the body's cooling mechanisms are overloaded, either by poor acclimatization or overexertion. Athletes that practice in heats of over 100 degrees are more prone to heat exhaustion because of the rapid loss of liquids while they train. The normal resting body…

  • Six Stroke Engine Essay

    SIX-STROKE ENGINE Introduction The six-stroke engine is an ingenious invention that has the potential to increase engine efficiency by around 30 percent. As fossil fuels are increasingly more expensive to produce and utilize, many have been seeking for answers to these problems. The six-stroke engine seeks to solve some of these problems by exploiting heat that would normally be lost in the four-stroke engine. It does this by utilizing an extra pump to produce more torque and power. In the…

  • Comparing Diesel Engine Vs. Gasoline Engines

    sparks from spark plugs. Diesel engines are slightly different, the air is compressed before the fuel is injected. The fuel then ignites because air heats up when it is compressed(“How Stuff Works”). Just as a gasoline engine, a diesel engine uses a four-stroke combustion cycle. The four-stroke cycle is made up of the intake stroke, compression stroke, combustion stroke, and exhaust stroke. During the intake stroke, air enters when the intake valve opens up and causes the piston to move…

  • Essay On Diesel Engine

    the cylinder of an internal combustion engine. The compression ratio for a diesel engine usually ranges between 15:1 and 23:1. The reason being for this high compression ratio is purposely higher causing the temperature of the air to rise. A four-stroke engine has a camshaft which is used to rotate at half the speed of the crankshaft. (1:2 Ratio) Therefore the crankshaft will need to rotate twice for the camshaft to make one rotation. The four-stroke cycle, is a cycle that uses intake, exhaust,…

  • Temperature And Body Temperature

    Therefore, if these responses and behavioral mechanisms such as seeking shade in the heat, are able to restore the balance in the body temperature, it is detected by the thermoreceptors and relayed back to the thermoregulatory centre. But in a prolonged exposure to high environmental temperature, body temperature cannot be restored by negative feedback control because the mechanisms of homeostasis become over-whelmed, then the normal biochemical and physiological balance in the body is lost.…
