# Boil Water,The Fastest Way [closed]

Few days ago I had to boil water to cook for myself a meal, and then I wondered what is the fastest way to boil that pot of water , any suggestions?(of course I had like to get some formulas and relation between the amount of water and the shape of the pot).

• Detonate a nuclear bomb inside of the pot. Seriously, though, I think more information (amount of energy avaliable, amount of water, size of pot, etc.) would be needed to give a practical answer to this question. – Dave Coffman Sep 9 '14 at 19:31
• You might find the insights in an earlier answer physics.stackexchange.com/a/129333/26969 useful as you think about this. – Floris Sep 9 '14 at 19:40
• @DaveCoffman I want to get as much abstract formula as possible,we can assume that the amout of water is L,the radius of the button is R , the hight of the pot is H and we want to heat the water from room temperature to boiling state ,about amount of energy I cant realy say much.... – Gil Sep 9 '14 at 19:49
• Why do you need to heat water? Are you having soup? Just heat the food. Ping. – akrasia Sep 9 '14 at 21:46
