## How much energy is needed to boil the 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**. The amount of energy needed to change the phase of water to a gas from a liquid is 540 times the amount of energy needed to raise the same amount of water 1° C.

## How do you calculate the energy of water?

Find the solution’s specific heat on a chart or use the specific heat of water, which is 4.186 joules per gram Celsius. Substitute the solution’s mass (m), temperature change (delta T) and specific heat (c) into the equation **Q = c x m x delta T**, where Q is the heat absorbed by the solution.

## How much energy does it take to boil 1 Litre of water?

Based on the above answers and examples, to boil 1 litre of water from 20C to 100C, requiring **0.183 kWh** of either electricity or gas, at todays energy prices GAS is 68% cheaper than electricity.

## How do you calculate joules to heat water?

Answer: The specific heat capacity of water is (roughly) **4.184 kilojoules / kg K**. (10 kg) × (40 degrees Celsius temperature change) × (4.184 kJ / kg K) = 1673.6 kilojoules.

## Why is energy needed to boil water?

Boiling water is an endothermic process, which supplies **heat to the water molecules**, increasing their potential energy. … Once the intermolecular bonds are broken, any extra heat increases the kinetic energy of the system and the molecules of the water vapor move faster as the temperature increases.

## How much energy is required to boil 150g water?

Answer: **47,070 J** are needed to increase the temperature of 150 g of water from 25 degrees C to its boiling point of 100 degrees C. Explanation: 25 degrees Celsius is 298 degrees Kelvin; 100 degrees Celsius, 373 degrees Kelvin.

## How do you calculate the energy required to heat?

The specific heat capacity is the heat or energy required to change one unit mass of a substance of a constant volume by 1 °C. The formula is **Cv = Q / (ΔT ⨉ m)** .

## How many kw does it take to boil a kettle?

The average kettle is **between 2 and 3 kilowatts (kw)**. The electricity that you use in your home is measures in kilowatt hours (kWh) which is the number of kilowatts used per hour.

## 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**.
