Question

A solar cooker consists of a curved reflecting surface that concentrates sunlight onto the object to be warmed (Fig. P20.63), the solar power per unit area reaching the Earth’s surface at the location is 600 W/m2. The cooker faces the Sun and has a diameter of 0.600 m. Assume that 40.0% of the incident energy is transferred to 0.500 L of water in an open container, initially at 20.0°C. How long does it take to completely boil away the water? (Ignore the heat capacity of the container.)
