This question already has an answer here:

I've got a bucket of water in which a heating coil made of copper is submerged with a temperature Tc and because of a heating liquid inside the coil, the copper stays at that temperature Tc. How much water (Tw = 25°C) can be evaporated per hour per surface area of copper?

Is there a formula to insert different temperatures and area rates of the heater to find the evaporation rate if the water is heated?

For simplicity: Airtemperature equals room temperature and the air pressure is 1 atm. The water surface area = 0,06m².

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


You have to first find out

  1. Heat required to convert Tw to Tc using H = Msd(T)
  2. Then heat to convert water to vapour by H = mL
  3. Then finally using above 2 question and rate give you will be able to find m of water
