    The amount of heat energy supplied to the water is the number of watts multiplied by the number of seconds, divide this by the mass of the water and the specific heat capacity of water (4.1855Jper gram of water per degree in Kelvin). I can check back if you like, or there's a good description here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Specific_heat_capacity#Extensive_and_intensive_quantities
