I'm looking for a word or phrase to be used with the word curiosity which will mean that someone's curiosity ends after obtaining enough information on the thing he was curious about.


He was curious about what is inside the box. His friend opened the box. He saw inside the box and that ......... his curiosity.


The word you are looking for is "satisfy":

He saw inside the box and that satisfied his curiosity.

Example from merriam-webster.com:

The movie failed to satisfy her curiosity about the assassination.
