Case 1: Which will boiling faster the container having steel ball dipped in it or container having only water?
Case 2: Which one will attain thermal equilibrium faster? Consider balls are just in middle of the container.
every condition of each the cases have same volume of water
The Attempt at a Solution
It is different than boiling stone; As we are heating simultaneously water and the steel ball.
In 1st case; as volume of water is same that means container with steel ball would require extra energy that means it will boil late.
In 2nd case; we could apply transient head transfer but how could we compare "h" for both the cases.
