Question

A refrigerator with a coefficient of performance of
4 transfers heat from a cold region at -20C to a hot region
at 30C. Calculate the total entropy change of the regions
when 1 kJ of heat is transferred from the cold region. Is the
second law satisfied? Will this refrigerator still satisfy the
second law if its coefficient of performance is 6?
