I highly recommend this Harvard Online Course “Science & Cooking” for food and Math lover:
Example of the Course :
How much boiled water you need to cook a perfect egg ?
By conservation of heat (energy), the heat (Q) of boiled water is transferred to the egg (assume no loss of heat to the environment: container, air, etc).
Secondary school Physics :
Q = m.C. (T’-T)
m = mass
T’= Final Température
T= Initial Temperature
Chef’s tip: a perfect egg cooked at around 64 C.
