comment Why water boiling time depends linearly on water volume?
I should've mentioned from the beginning - the kettle is heated by stove, not by electric element. So the amount of energy that is getting through depends on the conduction of the surface.

comment Why water boiling time depends linearly on water volume?
Yes, but they still radiate heat through the surface (skin) while the heat is generated by the volume (all cells inside). Same as kettle's content (water) is heated by stove at the surface.

It's not electric - it's heated by stove. Added this info into the question, sorry for confusion.

There are so called Bergmann's rule (added a link to the question) and Allen's rule according to which bigger animals live in colder climate. That's where I got the idea about Square-cube law. But as it appeared it doesn't work equally for liquids in kettles :)

I assume that depends on how deep the answer will be :)

Found this on why light goes through things like glass: youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&NR=1&v=Omr0JNyDBI0
