Homework Statement



A new liquid is discovered that has the same boiling point and specific heat as water but a latent heat of vaporization of 10 calories per gram. Assuming that this new liquid is safe to drink, would it be more or less convient than water for boiling eggs? Why?

The Attempt at a Solution



So I am not really sure what the answer is but i have a guess that it is more convenient since waters latent heat is 539 cal/g, while the new liquid is 10 cal/g, but im not sure why?

Please help
