Because there is more water in a bucket than in a cup, and more energy has to be put into the bucket of water than the little cup of water to bring them to the same temperature.

Does the amount of water affect when the water boils?

yes. the more water the longer it would take for the heating element to heat the water. the less water, the less time it would take to heat.

Does it take longer for water to cool or heat up?

It takes longer to cool off, but mostly depending on the temperature.

When you add an object in water why does it take longer to heat up?

because the object needs also to heat up

Who is the original inventor of pulleys?

A farmer who used to take out water bucket by bucket from a deep water well.

Why does it take longer to cook things in sauce than in water?

Because when you are cooking sauce it's thicker then water so it takes longer to heat.

Why would a glass of cold water reach room temperature faster than a bucket of cold water?

It takes less time to cool or heat a galls of water because there is less water. If it was a spoon of water it would take less time than a bucket. It is all about amount.

How do you convert calories to degrees Celsius?

You don't, because they measure different things. Temperature (degrees Celsius) describes how deep the heat is in something, whereas energy (calories) describes how much heat energy you put into it in order to make it that deep. -- I have a bucket of water on the table. -- I take a small cup, I dip a cup of water out of the bucket, and I place the cup on the table next to the bucket. -- The water in the bucket and the water in the cup both have the same temperature. -- I want to make the cup 10 degrees warmer, and I also want to make the bucket 10 degrees warmer. -- I'll need to add more calories of heat to the bucket, and fewer calories of heat to the cup, to raise both temperatures by the same number of degrees.

Why does it take longer for a gallon of water to boil than a pint?

To boil water a quantity of heat must be added to the water. If there is more water it requires more heat be added. The source of heat can only produce so much heat in a given period of time. So it takes it longer to produce the greater amount of heat to boil the greater amount of water.

How long does it take for Walking Fish to hatch from eggs?

anywhere from 14 to 30 days depending on the heat of the water. The colder the water the longer it will take.

Does soil absorb radiation better than water?

Water absorbs and conducts radiation better. ex. electricity is a form of radiation this is false because water will take longer to absorb heat than soil but when the source of heat is gone the water will insulate more heat than the soil, therefore the water will keep heat longer than soil but the soil will heat up faster.

How many cups of water does it take to fill a bucket?

The answer will depend on the size of the bucket!

Does the amount of water in a container affect how fast it heats up?

The amount of water in a container will affect how fast it heats up. If there is a small amount of water in a container the water will biol/heat faster. However, if there is a big amount of water it will take longer for the heat to reach all parts of the water resulting in a longer time for the water to boil/heat

Why does water take longer to heat up than most liquids?

Water has a high specific heat due to hydrogen bonding. This means water will resist change in temperature and it will take more energy to reach boiling point.

Why land heats up and cools down faster than water?

land is a solid while water is a liquid and liquids take longer than solids. As the water have larger value of specific heat so it take more time to heat up and then the releasing of heat is also because water can hold heat for more time due to its heat holding capacity

Does the amount of carbon atoms effect the heating of water?

Sort of. If carbon has a lower specific heat than water, the more percentage of the water is carbon, the easier it will heat up. Otherwise, it will take longer.

What is galvanised iron used for?

cut down on corrosion. a regular iron bucket till rust. a galvanized bucket will take much longer to rust.

Which cools faster a mass of cold air or a mass of cold water?

You would have to specify the amount of each. If the volume is the same, water (having a larger density) would have a much larger mass, and therefore take much longer to cool down or heat up. Even for the same mass, water will take longer to cool down or heat up, because of its larger specific heat.

Will hot water take longer to cool than hot oil?

Assuming the liquids are not boiling, the oil will take longer to cool than the water because it is less dense and therefore loses heat more slowly through conduction.

If Specific heat of water is greater than that of land This means?

Water heats and cools slower than land. It is because the specific heat is the amount of heat that it takes to be raised to a certain temperature. If the heat is higher it would take longer to heat and cool. That is my interpretation anyways.

How many buckets of water cow take to fill a bath?

Does the starting temperature of the water affect how long it takes to freeze?

Yes, the warmer the water, the longer it will take to remove enough heat energy to cause freezing.

How long does it take water to heat up to 100 degrees?

It all depends on the amount of water, the temperature of the water at the start, the amount of heat, the size of the pan or whatever you are going to use and what that is made of. You can imagine that a drop of water would heat up to 100C in a second or less. If the water is icy, it will take longer to heat than water is at 80C. If the pan is iron, that will heat faster than a pan of wood (although that isn't usually used that way.)

What is the name of game to take an apple from bucket fool of water?

Why does it take longer to heat up melted ice than regular tap water?

Because melted ice will still be a lot colder than the tap water.

Does it take longer to boil water at higher altitudes?

Actually because of the higher altitude you have less atmaspheric pressure which means that it takes less heat to boil water.
