No. First, the water will never be hotter than 212 degrees F (or 100 degrees Celsius). Above that, it becomes steam. Secondly, much of the heat output goes up the chimney.

What is digital temperature sensor?

Digital temperature sensors are usually silicon-based temperature- sensing ICs that output precise digital representations of the temperatures they are measuring.

Is it possible to measure capacitance using only one 555 timer?

yes, it is possible to measure capacitance using only one 555 timer for it's monostable operation. When the output is high time is given by the equation t=1.1RC. From the output pulse measuring t(high) and then by measuring R we can calculate the capacitance.

What is temperature of heating element how to measure it if we know applied voltage or current. Is the temperature said to be even?

When talking of heating elements in the electrical trade the unit of watts is used. The higher the wattage value of the device the higher its temperature output. Heating cables are measured in watts per foot as a way of measuring their heat output. The equation to find wattage of a device is to multiply the voltage of the device times the amperage of the device as stated on the device's nameplate or tag. In most cases the temperature is linear throughout the length of the heating element. The actual temperature can be tested by using a laser spot temperature test instrument.

Why dynamo meter not use for measure power factor?

Because a dynamometer is used to measure the mechanical power output of a motor or engine. There are ways of measuring the power factor directly, for example use a plug-in power and energy monitor.

What is an electronic thermomters?

Electronic thermometer is modern thermometer used for measuring temperature. it consist transducer which convert temperature to analogous voltage/current/resistance and after that this signal variation processed by ckt and finally output will display on the screen. These are very accurate.

How and why do you monitor a persons urine output?

The urine output is measured to assess the kidneys status. It is also measured to know the ratio of fluid intake and fluid lost in urine. The method to measure is simple. The urine is made in a measuring bag and when it gets filled up, discarded and another bag is attached. The person can be catheterized or if fit he/she can make urine directly in measuring utensil.
