A spherical blackbody at a temperature of 500 K is placed into 200 mL of 10 oC water. If the temperature of the blackbody is 500 K, and the radius is 10 cm, how long would it take to bring the water to a boil? Assume that the blackbody's temperature is roughly constant during this process, and that it is denser than water.
