An engine has a hot reservoir of 520K and a low temperature reservoir of 330K. What is the theoretical efficiency of this engine? Answer in units of %

• Physics -

eff= 1-330/520=36.5 percent, not counting significant digits. I only see two sig digits in the temps. 37 percent using two sig digits.
