MCAT Question of the Day 81– General Chemistry

A pot containing 0.5 L of water at sea level is brought to 100°C. It is insulated around its sides to minimize heat loss to the environment, and heat is applied at the bottom of the container at a rate of 6 kJ/min over 3 minutes. What is the resulting temperature of the water? (∆Hvap = 40.7 kJ/kg; c(g) = 1.9 kJ/kg • °C; c(l) = 4.2 kJ/kg • °C)
