Full Answer

After beans have boiled a teaspoon of baking soda should be added to the water. The beans need to soak in the water overnight. Beans should be rinsed multiple times before use.

Canned beans do not have the gas content of dried beans. Therefore, canned beans do not need to go through the soaking process. Pinto beans are commonly served in broth, added to soups or mashed.

    What is convection vs. conduction?

    A:

    Convection is the heat transfer due to the motion of a fluid, such as a gas or liquid, that carries heat energy away from a heat source. Conduction instead occurs between materials in contact with each other without any movement between them. Convection is more efficient than conduction for heat transfer because the fluid that absorbs heat in convection moves away from the heat source, being replaced by cooler fluid.

    How does a dryer work?

    A:

    Regardless of whether they are powered by electricity or gas, dryers must have a tub that tumbles, a fan that blows air and a heat source. All dryers generate heat, either from an electric heating element or from a gas burner. Air from outside passes over this element or burner and travels into the drum where it permeates clothing and extracts moisture and lint.
