We have a heat engine that produces 150 J of heat, does 40 J of work, and emits 110 J into another system. What is the efficiency of the heat engine? (show you work)

asked by Mark
  1. if you put 150 in and get 40 out
    it is
    100(4/15) = 27%
    but
    it has to get energy from somewhere. It can not "produce" 150 + 40 +110 without putting any energy in. I suspect a typo in the problem description. It does not produce 150 J, it absorbs 150 J

    Just as no mechanical device can be 100% efficient, no heat engine can transfer 100% of its heat to a single object. Some of the heat energy must be wasted (released into the environment). We have a heat engine that produces 150 J
