Question

how does the transpiration cooling mechanism compare with the main cooling mechanism of mammals?

2 Answer

  • Like transpiration in plants mammal's hypothalamus makes sweat glands functional and mammal's body secretes sweat which on evaporation decreases the body temperature
  • Answer:

    In both the process ,liquid evaporates and carries away the heat  and also produce cooling sensation on the surface of the mammal or object

    Explanation:

    In the process of transpiration (which is a thermodynamic process), when a liquid or gas transpires or evaporates from the surface of any structure then it carries away the heat energy contained in that structure and also reduces the radiative heat flux  coming into the that structure thereby producing a colling effect.

    Like wise , sweat released by the gland in skin of  mammals evaporates leaving a cooling effect on the surface or body.
