A water fountain is designed to cool water initially at 22.8∘C to a cool 7.7∘C at an average rate of 47 L/hr. It is expected that the water reservoir will absorb 46 W of heat from the surroudings. The refrigeration system has a COP of 1.79. (Assume the water has a constant specific heat.) What is the rate of heat absorption for this water fountain?
