Some Carnot engine has an efficiency 0.700. The hot reservoir temperature is 900K. This means that the temperature of the cold reservoir is 270K. If the cold reservoir is dropped to 260K, the new efficiency is 0.701.

If the output of the power is kept constant by increasing the amount of time it takes to complete a cycle, what's the ratio of the wasted transfer of heat after the change to before the change?
