Are you studying basic thermodynamics? Because your question is exactly what people learn in the first few classes of this subject. First Law of Thermodynamics tells us that every joule of energy from the burner will act to increase the system's internal energy.note 1 Also, the total volume of your system is constant (isochoric process). We need only to use ...

The issue is not "equilibrium" - the issue is boiling. During boiling, there is explicitly NO equilibrium: the water wants to get out of the liquid phase, and into the vapor phase. The temperature of the liquid is sufficiently high that liquid can evaporate below the surface (strictly speaking the temperature must be slightly above boiling for that, as the ...

The reason behind the hissing sound is that the temperature of the water droplet is much lower than the hot surface. As soon as the water droplet's base touches the hot surface it quickly evaporates but still the top part of the droplet is in liquid state and there is an opposition to th water-vapour coming from below. As the water-vapour couldn't vertically ...
