Question
Pressure cookers increase cooking speed by raising the boiling temperature of water above its value at atmospheric pressure. (a) What pressure is necessary to raise the boiling point to $120.0^\circ\textrm{C}$ ? (b) What gauge pressure does this correspond to?
1. $1.99 \times 10^5 \textrm{ N/m}^2$
2. $9.8 \times 10^4 \textrm{ N/m}^2$
