Problem: Heating a cup of water to near boiling temperature to use for tea takes time. If 300 mL of water at 23oC is heated on 250 W stove, how long will it take for the water to reach 100oC? If the water is left for 1 minute too long, what percentage of the water evaporated by the time you remove the water from the stove? Assume that the stove outputs 250 W of heat. Note that the specific heat of water is 4.184 kJ/kgK and the latent heat of vaporization of water is 2260 kJ/kg.
