Water is also important in maintaining a constant cellular temperature, and thus a constant body temperature, because it absorbs and releases heat slowly. Evaporative cooling (sweating) through the skin also involves water. Another function of water is as a reactant in the breakdown (hydrolysis) of organic compounds. The specific locations where water is found in the body are called water compartments. They are Intracellular fluid (ICF): fluid within cells; about 65% of the total body water. Extracellular fluid (ECF): all fluid not in cells; about 35% of the total body water.
