# Amount of steam generated using gas burner and Induction cooker

I did an experiment by boiling water using two different heat sources. At first, I boiled water using a gas stove, then I repeated by using an induction cooker. I noticed that the amount of steam (visible vapour) formed is not the same. When using induction cooker, I could see a massive amount of steam but very little when I boil water using gas burner. For both cases, Im using the same pot size and the room condition is the same. I'm interested to know why there is different in steam formed.

• Lots of standard induction cooktops can easily put out much more power than a typical gas cooktop. Could the difference in the amount of steam you're seeing simply be explained by the fact that the induction cooktop may be boiling off water at a significantly faster rate than the gas cooktop? – Samuel Weir Nov 9 '18 at 17:58
• Hi Samuel, the induction cooktops that im using is only 7kw. But the capacity of the gas burner that im using in this test is about 40kw, commercial high pressure gas burner. The purpose im carry out this test is i thought that it could generate more visible steam using gas burner because the power is much higher. But it turned out another way. – cktan Nov 12 '18 at 0:46
