K.C.S.E Biology Q & A - MODEL 2000PP1QN13
The temperature of a person was taken before, during and after taking a cold bath. The results are shown in the graph below
(a) Explain why the temperature fell during bath
(b) What changes occurred in the skin that enabled the body temperature to return to normal?
(a) Heat loss by conduction/ convection from the blood vessels
The body skin to the cold water, the cooler blood leaving skin enters general circulation cooling the whole body.
(b) Vasoconstriction; thus less blood flowing to the skin reducing heat loss.
Sweating eases heat produced through metabolism
Accept shivering producing heat
