# Three engines operate between reservoirs separated in temperature by 300 K. The reservoir temperatures are as follows: Engine A: T h = 1000 K, T c = 700 K Engine B: T h = 800 K, T c = 500 K Engine C: T h = 600 K, T c = 300 K Rank the engines in order of their theoretically possible efficiency, from highest to lowest (a) A, B, C (b) B, C, A (c) C, B, A (d) C, A, B
