Does the human body absorb water while swimming?
I weigh308-312 depending on the time of day. I started weighing myself before and after my daily 60-minute swim. I consistatly absorb approximately 7=10 pounds of weight in that hour. I swim about 3/4 mile in that hour period - breast, back and freestyle 30/30/30. I suspected I was absorbing a month ago when I went to my dr. appointment. I'd weighed that morning at the Y; then swam and went to my appointment to find the 12-pounds showing up on his scale. I attributed this to scale differences, the fact that I was clothed and wearing shoes. I began weighing before and after and sure enough, because of my over-sized human "sponge", I absord perportionately. I suppose someone "smaller"; leaner BMI might absorb somewhat less... a 150lb man might only pick up 2-3lbs water??? I will continue to mintor.

There are enough electrolytes in blood, saliva, urine, and manyother bodily fluids that they can be used to make workingbatteries. However you need to take two dissimilar metals (e.g.copper, zinc) and immerse the two metals in such bodily fluids tomake a battery. And such metals are not present in t…he situationcited in the question. (MORE)
These are averages of. Babies - 75%. One year of age - drops to 65%. Adult Men - 60%. Adult Women - 55% (because they typically have more fat than men)
75% i believe,that's most of your body 70% is "ideal" for a lean person, fat people can be a lot less ... down to about 50 %.
The average human adult male is approximately 60% water by weight,while the average adult female is approximately 50% water byweight.
Water is primarily absorbed in two places: 1) during digestion, water is primarily absorbed in the small intestine (90%), the remaining water (10%) is absorbed by the large intestine. 2) during filtration of the blood in the kidneys, water is reabsorbed in the nephron hope that points you in …the right direction.

Yes the alcohol causes the body to become de-hydrated so it is very important to remain hydrated and drink plenty of water ideally before, during and after consumption of alcohol.
because microwaves heat up water and there is water in your body, microwaves can also penetrate your skin.
Why is energy transferred from your body into the cold sea while swimming even though you have less internal energy than the surrounding cool water?
What's happening is your body is trying to stay at 96*F and while your in the water heat is being conducted away from your body, into the water, then your body trys to heat its self again. And when your body heats its self it used energy.
very little .. almost no. but if someone stays in water with high minarals content for long water outside can absorb water from body ... that's why our skin wrinkles
This med is an NSAID. If administered PO, this med is absorbed in the gut and very quickly progresses through plasma, concetrating in synovial fluids. In fact, chronic application showed nearly double the plasma level of the drug in the synovial fluid (of the knee mostly). This med is very protein-b…ound. It metabolizes mostly in the kidneys into the main metabolite, 4`-hydroxyaceclofenac, and is excreted 80% through urine and 20% through feces. (MORE)

About 2/3 of the average human body is water, mostly within the cells. Approximation By Age Human bodies have the following proportion of water by weight : Babies: 78% One year of age: 65% Adult Men: 60% Adult Women: 55%
Water is made by the body during a process called "respiration".. The body needs energy for every chemical process, without energy we cannot exist.. The body makes energy by breaking up glucose (sugar) molecules, fatty acids, and amino acids, going through a series of processes. The end result is …energy, stored in molecules called ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate).. Water is a byproduct, a waste product of these procedures.. Hope is helps. (MORE)
so we dont die you need water because if you are running really fast all your blood presure goes up and bcomes warm so if you drink water it makes your body amd blood cooler for you and also you need water because so you dont drehigatexx
An adult requires a minimum of 1.5 liters (a quart and a half) per day to survive. Without water you can die in about 3 days (an infant in one). Extremes in exertion and/or environment can shorten that time.
It's absorbed in the small intestine & then it's put into blood to provide energy around the body.
water in the body is used for alot of things,it helps digest the system by clearing all of the acids and making sure your body is hydrated.
Why the human living body is drowning in the water but why dead body of the human is swimming on the surface of the water give the scientific reason?
There is oxygen in the body which is lighter than water thus the body rising up to the surface of the water
The parts of the body that absorb water are the intestines. Theyalso absorb most nutrients, especially the small intestine. Anyremaining water after digestion gets into the body via the largeintestine.
No, the salt in a water softener is used during the regeneration cycle and is flushed to the drain. If the machine is working properly, it does not put salt into the household plumbing.
If the human body don't have water,they will die. Or if they don't drink water,they will die because of thirst(especially in hot place)
The human body has a variable water content that changes daily and with age and gender and body type. On average, adult humans have 57 to 63 % water by mass. At birth, a baby can have up to 75% water weight and this decreases with age. Obese individuals can have as little as 45% water weight…. Women tend to have a few percent less water weight than men, but this is largely a difference in muscle and body fat between individuals. (MORE)
The intestines are the part of the body that absorbs water and nutrients. The small intestine absorb most nutrients from food. The large intestine recovers water from digestion.
Yes. It does, of course, depend on exactly what the pollution is and whether you swallow any of it or not. Technically, any lake a motorboat has been on is "polluted", since it will contain traces of oil, but you can probably swim in that with no problems.
The Body regulates water balance by performing osmosis. Each cell of the body balances the materials and the water content inside of it using osmosis. Osmosis is technically the diffusion of water through a semi-permeable membrane, or rather the movement of water across the membrane from a higher… water potential to a lower water potential. (Concentration Differences between to areas.) (MORE)
The most water is lost through exhalation (breathing), sweating and evaporation, and excretion (in urine). You can lose water from your body through sweating Another way to loose liquid is evaporation through breathing, urinating, bleeding, and vomiting. These factors greatly influence emergency su…rvival in arid areas and ones survival strategies should focus on preventing these. Eating food when water is scarce also draw water out of the body reserves to digest the food increasing dehydration. Drinking salt water also drains water from the body to process the salt and in a dehydration situation it can be potentially fatal to drink salt water.. When you reach the point where you stop sweating the body have no way of regulating body temperature and heatstroke is imminent. (MORE)
Depends on how hard you work. Man hauling a sledge in the Antarctic, you'll need 4000 to 8 000 calories per day, and of that, at least 40% fat. Ordinary folk get by with a few thousand calories per day, but if you are a blacksmith or a quarry worker, you might need 2000 to 4000 calories. If you …have less than 1500 cal you are unlikely to put on weight; less than 1000, you'll start to starve. Your body is about 20% efficient in converting food calories into energy. [As measured in rowing machine tests, where energy output and calorie consumption may easily be measured.] Remember, the 'food calorie' is 1000 times that of the 'scientific calorie' which is the amount of heat needed to raise 1ml of water by 1 o C. NOTE: (added by bruce) It's my understanding that human body can absorb approximately 300 food-calories an hour or 7200 calories a day, assuming optimal conditions and variations among individuals, of course. Interesting tidbit ; I have heard that athletes like M. Phelps, and riders in the Tour de France are incapable of restoring the calories they burn daily. They actually need time off to catch up. I'd be interested to know more about this myself. (MORE)
It is simple. When a person cups their hand and brings it towards themselves they are creating resitance to the water and are propelled forwards if they are kicking their feet while parallel to the bottom of the pool, lake, ocean ect. ect.
Oil will adhere to many surfaces. Many natural materials such as straw, grass, coconut husks, wood chips and mats made of hair will absorb oil. I have included links to some of the manufacturers of commercial sponges and chemical products. These links may be more promotional than factual, as I do…n't believe there is any product that will absorb only oil. There are many materials that will have an oil preference. When a small spill occurs in calm water, particularly a harbor, lake or river, use of containment booms and absorbing material may be effective. Also, absorbents can be effective for soaking up land spills. See related links. (MORE)

Drinking more than 500 ml per hour results in flushing. The excess will be flushed, which can be an issue if you consumed that water with nutrients (ie: vitamins, protein, etc...) Too much water consumption can result in kidney stress as well. I train 5 days a week and drink an average of 2-3 lit…ers of water a day at 500 ml intervals - with a minimum of an hour between servings. (MORE)
It is an inert gas, and is completely exhaled, along with carbon dioxide, after each inhalation.
As a matter of fact you can. You will want to wear a tampon NOT a pad they will fall apart or come off. If you wear a tampon you will have to check frequently for bleeding because the leek guard protection will not work because the string is wet.
Up to 60 percent, but the more you weigh the less water the body has in it.
yes, get a lungfull of air and you'll float like a boat! A: It really depends on one's density which is very similar to water. Some people can easily float in freshwater by lying on their backs and keeping the lungs mostly full of air. Others can't, or can't do it comfortably. Fat is lighter tha…n water, and will actually aid in the ability to float. Saltwater in the oceans and seas is much easier to float in due to the increased density. As dead bodies in the water decompose, they tend to fill with methane gas and will also float. (MORE)
sleeping can actually promote growth in your body and without proper sleep you might not grow taller. The more fluid in your joints the taller you will grow. This is why gravity is your biggest enemy when trying to grow taller since it will pull on your body while you're in an upright position and… squeeze the fluids out your joints by compressing them. So during the day while you're in an upright position gravity will cause your body to shrink by squeezing fluids out your joints. Laying down counters that gravity! Sleeping helps you grow! (MORE)
Many different ways. About 50% is lost in urine (pee), and the other is about 25% in sweat and 25% in respiration.
You have 60 % water in your body. You have 20 % water in extracellular compartment. You have 40 % water in intracellular compartment.
Due to the lack of the normal amount of gravitational pull, swimmers can often be clumsy outside of the water. Also, if you are not swimming correctly, this will cause great strain on many joints. However, if you are doing your strokes correctly, swimming is a great sport for exercise, strength, mai…ntaining body weight while still bloating yourself with food, and endurance. (MORE)

Skin of a human? I don't know, you tell me, how often do you get in the pool and absorb the water?...yeah...
Air will only absorb heat from a body if it is at a lower temperature. Being an insulator does not mean that something will not absorb heat, it just means that heat moves through it slowly. Since air has such a low density, the molecules in it are widely spaced compared to a liquid or solid and cond…uction of heat through the air is very slow since the molecules do not collide nearly as frequently as they do in more dense materials.

The term oil has a broad definition. We generally consider oils to be hydrocarbons that come from plants or animals. Petrochemicals are also oils. The long, complex molecules that are oils will all, to a greater or lesser degree, be absorbed by the body. The question is usually how much might be abs…orbed and where they may be absorbed (like through the skin or through the walls of the intestinal tract). A general rule of thumb might be that the longer and more complex the hydrocarbon molecules, the less that will be absorbed. Other than that, there is probably not much else we can say without launching headlong into a full discussion of organic chemistry. (MORE)
Quite so. The water in a swimming pool is cooler than body temperature (unless the swimming pool is actually a hot tub) and therefore, a person in that pool will lose heat by conduction.
Nature has selected water as a medium for life. Water has so many advantages over the other liquids. First of all, it was available every where on the earth. Then it is the best solvent of all. It does not expand at very fast rate. There is enough gap between it's freezing point and boiling point. T…here are so many other advantages with the water. (MORE)
