How much energy does it take to boil water?



  1. 0 Votes

    The energy needed to boil water depends on the mass of the water (how much of it), specific heat capacity, and change in temperature. It’s determined through the equation Energy = mass x specific heat capacity x change in temperature. The link below gives a specific example of this, but the energy required varies depending on these factors.

    You can also alter the amount of energy required through the means by which you contain the water, and potentially adding a catalyst to the reaction.
