# To turn 50g of boiling water to steam requires

In summary, the conversation was about questions related to energy and heat in science. The participants discussed the amount of energy needed to turn boiling water into steam, the best way to keep warm in cold weather, and the possibility of converting energy into mechanical energy. They also talked about the energy absorption and emission of different materials and the amount of energy converted to heat by light bulbs. Finally, they discussed the danger of steam burns compared to burns caused by boiling water and expressed their frustration with the subject.
Please someone help me with my homework :D i have tried and tried but i just suck at science

No one is here to check your answers. If you want help with a question, show what you've tried and where you're struggling.

## 1. How much energy is required to turn 50g of boiling water to steam?

The amount of energy required to turn 50g of boiling water to steam can be calculated using the specific heat capacity and latent heat of vaporization of water. The specific heat capacity of water is 4.18 J/g°C and the latent heat of vaporization is 2260 J/g. Therefore, the total energy required is 50g x 4.18 J/g°C x (100°C - 0°C) + 50g x 2260 J/g = 209,000 J.

## 2. Can the energy required to turn water to steam be reduced?

Yes, the energy required to turn water to steam can be reduced by increasing the temperature of the water or decreasing the pressure. This can be achieved through techniques such as using a higher heat source or using a vacuum chamber.

## 3. How does the energy required to turn water to steam compare to other substances?

The energy required to turn water to steam is relatively high compared to other substances. This is due to its high specific heat capacity and latent heat of vaporization, which means it requires more energy to raise its temperature and change its state compared to other substances with lower values for these properties.

## 4. What factors affect the energy required to turn water to steam?

The energy required to turn water to steam is primarily affected by the temperature and pressure of the water. Other factors that can influence the energy required include the presence of impurities in the water, the heating source used, and the efficiency of the heating process.

## 5. How long does it take for 50g of boiling water to turn into steam?

The time it takes for 50g of boiling water to turn into steam depends on various factors such as the heat source, the size of the container, and the surrounding temperature. However, on average, it takes approximately 6 minutes to turn 50g of boiling water into steam using a standard stove burner at maximum heat.
