4.184 * 250 * 79 = 82,634 joules. In other words, it takes more than 82.6 kJ to heat a cup of water to boiling point!! We usually only need between 1 and 10 joules to heat blood/hair sufficiently to destroy their proteins.

## How much heat energy does it take to boil water?

The energy required to change water from a liquid to a solid is 333.7 kJ/kg while the energy required to boil water is 2257 kJ/kg.

## Does it take a lot of energy to boil water?

Explanation: In order to cause water to increase in temperature, the energy being put into the water first needs to break hydrogen bonds between the water molecules. Hydrogen bonding in water is significant, so it takes a significant amount of energy to overcome them.

## How much watts does it take to boil water?

The specific heat capacity is in the equation. If it takes 1 min to boil the water, it will take 1600 watt hours or 1.6 kilo watt hours.

## How much energy does it take to boil 500g of water at its boiling point?

Where Q is the heat (J), m is the mass (g) and L is the latent heat (J/g). Hence, 1115 kJ of heat is needed to vaporize 500 g of water at its boiling point.

## How do you calculate the energy needed to boil?

Using the equation Q=mcΔT we can calculate the amount of energy for heating the water to 100 degrees. c=4187 Joules per kilogram- the specific heat capacity of water. ΔT = 100-43=57, how many degrees we must increase the water by to make it boil and turn into steam.

## Does it take more energy to heat or boil water?

Which is more energy efficient – boiling water using an electric kettle, a kettle on a gas hob or a microwave oven? IT TAKES the same amount of energy to heat one litre of water no matter which method of heating used. The only difference in the methods is the amount of time each takes.

## How much energy does it take to boil 100 ml of water?

So 100ml of water has a mass of 100 grams. The change in temperature is (100°C – 27°C) = 73°C. Since the specific heat of water is 4.18J/g/°C we can calculate the amount of energy needed by the expression below. Energy required = 4.18 J/g/°C X 100g X 73°C = 30.514KJ.

## Why does it take a lot of heat to boil water?

Heat capacity of water

It takes a lot of heat to increase the temperature of liquid water because some of the heat must be used to break hydrogen bonds between the molecules.
