Chapter 1 Basics of Heat TransferReview Problems 1-121 Cold water is to be heated in a 1200-W teapot. The time needed to heat the water is to be determined. Assumptions1Steady operating conditions exist. 2Thermal properties of the teapot and the water are constant. 3 Heat loss from the teapot is negligible. PropertiesThe average specific heats are given to be 0.6 kJ/kg.°C for the teapot and 4.18 kJ/kg.°C for water. AnalysisWe take the teapot and the water in it as our system that is a closed system (fixed mass). The energy balance in this case can be expressed as EEEEUUUinoutsysteminsystemwatertea pot−===+ΔΔΔΔThen the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of water
