Heat gained in a solar oven

  1. May 30, 2013 #1
    Would it be incorrect to assume the amount of heat gained (ΔQ) for a sample of water in a solar oven would be the same for any substance in the same solar oven at the same time?

    If you neglect losses and assume that the absorbing material is independent of the substance in the oven, sure.
