Question
(a) How much heat transfer is required to raise the temperature of a 0.750-kg aluminum pot containing 2.50 kg of water from $30.6^\circ\textrm{C}$ to the boiling point and then boil away 0.750 kg of water? (b) How long does this take if the rate of heat transfer is 500 W? 1 watt = 1 joule / second (1W = 1 J/s).
1. $2.47 \times 10^6 \textrm{ J}$
2. $4.94 \times 10^3 \textrm{ s}$
