(a) By how much would the body temperature of the bicyclist in Problem 17.89 increase in an hour if he were unable to get rid of the excess heat? (b) Is this temperature increase large enough to be serious? To find out, how high a fever would it be equivalent to, in $^\circ$F? (Recall that the normal internal body temperature is 98.6$^\circ$F and the specific heat of the body is 3480 J/kg $\cdot$ C$^\circ$.)
