# A bit funny practical task: frozen dumplings in boiled water, how temperature changes and when will boil again?

This is my question:

1. I take a pot with boiling water (temperature of water is equal to boiling temperature), water was boiled in tea can
2. I take frozen dumplings
3. Now I put dumplings into the pot
4. Only now I put this pot on the stove
5. We know that dumplings would be ready in 7 minutes (so they would start floating up)

My question is - whether in 10 seconds after putting dumplings into the pot, water would be still boiling (taking into account that we put pot on stove again)?

• So, I think that just after putting frozen dumplings into the pot, probably water won't be boiling any more (water temperature would decrease)
• I also assume that water temperature would drop from 100 to maybe 80? Is it logical? Or 80 is incorrect assumption?
• Then when put on the stove, water would start boiling again at some point
• But is 10 seconds enough for water to boil again?
• Does it depend on amount of water/dumplings or not?
• How to calculate (or at least understand approximately) how would water temperature change in 1 sec after we put dumplings into the water? And how it will change when put on the stove back?

I do not need some solution, but just help with correct reasoning, how to think correctly and what are processes that should be taken into account? I am also not given any precise values (like amount of water or dumplings). I want to understand different scenarios if there are possible multiple solutions.
