A Carnot engine operates between 170°C and 20°C. How much ice can the engine melt from its exhaust after it has done 6.0 104 J of work?

i need a step by step process. you don't have to give me the answer.

  • physics -

    find the efficiency.
    Then with efficiency, and work done, find work wasted.
    From work wasted, convert to ice melting.
