## Question:

Water is boiled by two heaters of different geometries: a spherical heater and a horizontal flat heater. Both heaters are submerged in water that boils at 1 atm. The spherical heater has a diameter of 1 m, and the horizontal flat heater has the same surface area as the spherical heater. Determine the maximum rate of water vaporization that can be achieved by each heater without reaching burnout. Which heater geometry would produce higher maximum rate of vaporization?
