I tried to use latent heat of vaporization of water times maximum mass rate of boiling before saucepan boils over (I can’t understand the physical meaning of this part, I guess it bass on the unit) and divided by the efficiency of energy transfer, so I got the answer 1610 but its wrong and I can’t figure out why.
You have to also add the extra power you can lose from P=kt, then divide this by 0.7
