I've started using an instant-read digital thermometer when I boiler water for Loretta's coffee. It's gotta' be 190° for a good cup of drip coffee. Recently, I wanted to watch the temperature rise to 212° and then sit there, waiting for that additional 970 BTU's per pound in order to start boiling, but as soon as the temperature hit 212°, it started to boil. The temperature rise to boiling as a function of time is linear.
I understand the concept of latent heat, but how does that additional 970 BTU's get transferred to change the phase of water from liquid to gas?
