How much energy does it extract from the outside air with coefficient of performance 3.85?
A heat pump has a coefficient of performance of 3.85 and operates with a power consumption of 6.91 x 10^3 W.

The first part of the question asked How much energy does it deliver into a home during 8 h of continuous operation? and I got 766180800 J.

I need help on the last part which asks How much energy does it extract from the outside air? answer in Joules.

  • Physics - ,

    Qout = Qin + Win

    Qin = Qout - Win
    = Qout - Qout/3.85
    = 0.7403 Qout

    Use your previously caclulated value of Qout, which was correct. Scientific notation would be preferable

    I got lost when you got to:

    = Qout - Qout/3.85
    = 0.7403 Qout

    What did you exactly do? I'm not seeing where those two Qout's came from and how you got the .7403.
