Question

During each cycle a reversible engine absorbs 3100 J of heat from
a high-temperature reservoir and performs 1900 J of work. (a) What
is the efficiency of this engine? (b) How much heat is exhausted to
the low-temperature reservoir during each cycle? (c) What is the
ratio, Th>Tc, of the two reservoir temperatures?
