Step 1

According to the first law of thermodynamics, the energy supplied to a system is first used to perform the work done and then, the remaining energy is used by the system to increase its internal energy. Thus, the increase in the internal energy of the system is the difference between the net energy supplied to the system and the work done by the system.

Step 2

In this case, when we supply some heat energy to the car, the difference of the supplied ene...
