container holding 340g of water (initially at 14 degrees celsius) is placed in microwave oven, which is turned on for 3 minutes. Assuming all microwave energy is absorbed by water, how much water is left in container?

    It would be helpful to know the radiation power of the microwave.

  • Physics - ,

    1000W

    The microwave oven gives Q = P•t = 1000•180 =1.8•10^5 J.
    The amount of heat necessary to heat the water to 100oC
    Q1 = c•m1•Δt = 4180•0.340•86 =
    = 1.22•10^5 J,
    Q2 = Q – Q1 = 1.8•10^5 - 1.22•10^5 =
    = 0.58•10^5 J.
    This amount of heat transforms the mass m2 to the vapor
    Q2 = r•m2 =2250000•m2,
    m2 = 0.58•10^5/2250000 =2.58•10^-2 kg =0.0258 kg.

  • Physics - ,

    Mass of left water is m1-m2= 0.340-0.0258 =0.31422 kg
