1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data How can food in an oven be made to cook more quickly? Explain why you think that your answer states the most effective method. 2. Relevant equations none 3. The attempt at a solution All I can think is by increasing the temperture at which the oven is set. i.e. Let more heat be converted from electrical means into the oven. Sometimes this method results in charcoaled surfaces of the food which is undesirable. I am not sure if this is the most effective method. It probably is the most direct method.
