A thermodynamic engine operates cyclically and reversibly between two temperature reservoirs, absorbing heat from the high-temperature bath at 450 K and discharging heat to low temperature bath at 300 K.
(i) Calculate the thermodynamic efficiency of the engine
(ii) How much heat is discarded to the low-temperature bath if 1500 J of heat is absorbed from the high-temperature bath during each cycle?
(iii) How much work does the engine perform in one cycle of operation?
The question belongs to Chemistry and it discusses about calculating the thermodynamic efficiency of an engine operating between temperatures of 450 K and 300 K.
