So, I am kind of physics dumb. I have found the equation for water evaporation from a pool and I have been attempting to make work and make sense for creating a spreadsheet that will help me predict the amount of water evaporation from milk while cooking it in order to create a reduction.
My question has 2 parts in that sense: How do i figure out the rate of evaporation of water for milk (I really need help breaking this down)?
How can I put it into a spread sheet where I can easily edit it as the variables change?
Right now, my variables are as follows: constant temperature for milk of 71°C, controlled room temperature of 70°F, and a pot of 30cm diameter.
As of right now, the humidity is very different from day to day (does higher humidity mean less evaporation?) and I have no way of calculating velocity of my kitchen air, however I am thinking of adding a fan in order to increase evaporation rate.
Is that enough information to have someone help me answer my question? I would really appreciate a break down of the math so that I can put it into a spread sheet for future use.
