    Estimate how long a 3000W electric kettle would take to boil away 100g of water. The specific latent heat of vapourisation of water is 2.25 MJkg.

    Please answer ASAP. Much appreciated

    Try working it out yourself or you won't improve. Find out how much energy is needed to raise the temperature of 100g of water by 1. It takes 2.25MJ to raise the temperature of 1kg of water by 1. Then you know that 3000J/s, so you will be able to find how long it takes to boil water (100C)

    Ok but is there an equation to work this out...we haven’t done this at school yet, we’re doing this next lesson. I’ll try and work it out and I’ll ask whether I get the right solution in a couple of hours:

    Is the answer 75 seconds?

    So I did 225 kJ / 3 kJ / second= 75 seconds. Is this correct??
