In each cycle of its operation, a heat engine expels 6,100 J of energy and performs 1,300 J of mechanical work.
(a) How much thermal energy must be added to the engine in each cycle? (J)

(b) Find the thermal efficiency of the engine. (%)

  • Physics -

    W=1,300 J
    Q2=6,100 J
    Q1 =?
    W=Q1-Q2
    Q1=W+Q2
    efficiency =(Q1-Q2)/Q1 =W/Q1
