There is a post of boiling water on a stove. Someone turns the burner knob from medium to high. What happens to the temperature of the water?

If you increase the temperature or quantity of heat that is going into the water, then I would imgine that must mean that the water increases in temperature.

Then again if the water is already boiling then perhaps it just means that the water boils quicker but that there is not actually an increase in temperature.

I suppose you should try it and find out what happens.
