Question

A refrigerator operating on the Carnot cycle is used to make ice. Water freezing at 32^{o}F is the cold reservoir. Heat is rejected to a river at 72^{o}F. Determine the work required to freeze 2000 lbm of ice if the energy required to freeze ice is 144 Btu/lbm. What is the power input required in kW and hp is this operation is carried out in 1 hour?
