What is the efficiency of a heat engine that has constant reservoir temperatures of and ? Answer to three significant figures.
The graph shows the relationship between the loss of the internal energy of the high-temperature reservoir of a heat engine and the gain in internal energy of the heat engine’s low-temperature reservoir for different values of , the ratio of the temperatures of the reservoirs. Which is the greatest temperature ratio?
