000 cal × 10°C g°C = 1000 cal c. 2420 cal × 10°C g°C = 1242 cal The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 100 g of helium is larger than for an equal mass of air. This might suggest that the respiratory heat loss from breathing helium, as compared with air, would be enormous. However, the specific heat equation is based on mass. 2 cal/L g°C L Thus, although the heat capacity of helium is much greater than that of air, the difference in densities explains the lowerthan-expected respiratory heat loss that occurs during the breathing of mixes containing helium.

The perception of color depends on which components of the light have been reflected or absorbed by the object being observed. If an object reflects all the colors, it is observed to be white; if no colors are reflected, then the object observed will be black. Other colors result from combinations of reflection and absorption of the various components of light.
