It's 24.25 if you use Christian units lel

If you had 325 gallons in there, you would need 24.21 gallons of water at 100Â°C.

Well, you were the one who said that maybe "no one is smart enough to solve the problem"
I'm well aware that not everyone knows how to solve thermodynamics problems and that doesn't mean they're not "smart enough"...

okay ... so there are actually 325 gallons in the pool
the ambient air temp is 72F
the altitude is 869 feet

and while it may be a "simple" thermodynamics problem to you, my major in college took me down a non*mathematical path. however, as I said in a previous post, I enjoy learning new things .... even when they are difficult for me.

Anyway, it's a simple thermodynamics problem...

If you actually had.. let's say about 280 gallons in there.... and if we lived in a perfect world... you would need exactly 20.85 gal of boiling water...

But there are many other factors that would affect the result... like, the altitude or the actual temperature of the air, etc.

Is the quantity of water actually 325 gallons? because you said it can hold 325 galons, not that it contains 325 galons.
You need that variable to solve the problem (the exact amount of water in the pool).

thanks for providing a fresh perspective .... option "e"

option "f" puzzles me though ~ so maybe there's something i'm missing?

Dimensions of the space = 6' x 6' x 1.5'
Quantity of water = 325 gallons
Current Temperature = 68 degrees
Desired Temperature = 78 degrees

*I specified using boiling water {212F} since I thought that would make for an easier solve in that it's a "given". *

I really do like learning new stuff & it seems from your reply about "way too many variables" that i'm overlooking 1 or more things? What variables could be removed & still get an accurate amount of gallons needed?

{e} People don't read blogs as much as you think they might.
{f} WAY too many variables, so the result would only be a guesstimate (and impractical!).

I read a handful of blogs every year.
I only looked at yours out of curiosity, as I correctly though that you could not be blogging about what the poster below me thought you were blogging.
I have no interest in solving it, though.... because {f}.

Luann for providing clarity.

It's hard for me to believe that as robust as the Spark community is, that no one can or will take on the "challenge" posed by my blog.

So either:
{a} no one is smart enough to solve the problem ... or ....
{b} nobody wants to be helpful ... or ...
{c} the "prize" offered isn't enough ... or...
{d} one or more or all of the above

now, I'm absolutely NOT buying into "a" ..... there are way too many Sparkers for this to be true

c'mon guys .... cause otherwise, i'm gonna have to find the answer via the infamous, tedious process of Trial & Error.

The OP is talking about heating a pool, not how much water they should drink. And for the record, Spark People recommends drinking 64 ounces of fluids daily.

Take your weight and divide by 2 and that is how many ounces you need. The major problem is just getting into the habit of drinking even 1 cup (8 ounces).

It would mean a lot to me if you guys could read my blog "How Much Water?" and solve the story problem therein.

The 1st person to provide an accurate answer receives {after real world testing} :

#1. A virtual goodie of your choice {up to 200 points}
#2. An acknowledgment in a new blog.
#3. That "warm fuzzy feeling" you get when you've helped someone.

Thanks,

MARIE
