    Hii, I have a question about boiling water.
    Here is the problem: (This is in a restaurant)
    There is a boiled water (which is one order(of soup to be exact>_<)) Then, we find out there is supposed to be 2 orders instead of 1 order. So, one person says, we should take that already boiled water out, then boil another one. The other person says, we should just pour another into that already boiled water so they mixed together.
    So my question is, which one will boil up faster?
    I can't test it out myself since I dont have the materials. Could anyone please explain to me which one will boil up faster and why? If possible, could you please provide me a site or anything that I look up for?
    Thank you very much!

    P.S. I am not sure if I am posting in the right forum or not. Please move it if I post in wrong forum. Thank you!

    I'm pretty sure that both would boil at the same time.

    I have to say, just to confirm, they would probably boil at the same time.

    Same time. When you mix them, thermodynamics evens out the temperature of the molecules so essentially all of the water has the same starting point.

    Wow, we just repeated each other. I think silkworm is the only one to actually explain why, though.
