Explanation:

The temperature at which the food is cooked depends on three factors:

Area of the hole in the lid: The size of the hole affects steam release, impacting pressure and temperature.
Temperature of the flame: The intensity of the flame determines the heat transferred to the cooker.
Weight of the lid: The lid's weight regulates pressure by controlling steam release.
These factors collectively determine the cooking temperature in a pressure cooker.
