Question

When an aluminum bar is connected between a hot reservoir at 620 K and a cold reservoir at 358 K, 2.40 kJ of energy is transferred by heat from the hot reservoir to the cold reservoir.

(a) In this irreversible process, calculate the change in entropy of the hot reservoir.

(b) In this irreversible process, calculate the change in entropy of the cold reservoir.

(c) In this irreversible process, calculate the change in entropy of the Universe, neglecting any change in entropy of the aluminum rod.
