Question:

A 1200-W electric resistance heating element whose diameter is 0.5 cm is immersed in 40 kg of water initially at 20°C. Assuming the water container is well-insulated, determine how long it will take for this heater to raise the water temperature to 50°C. Also, determine the entropy generated during this process, in kJ/K.
