. What is the Carnot efficiency of a heat engine operating between the temperatures of 300°C (373 K) and 100°C (373 K)?

To determine

What is the Carnot efficiency of a heat engine operating between the temperatures of 300°C (573K) and 100°C(373K)?

Explanation

Given info:

Temperature, T1=3000C=573 K

Temperature, T2=1000C=373 K.

Formula used:

Carnot efficiency is the theoretical maximum efficiency of a heat engine. It is given by

Carnot efficiency=T1T2T1×100%

Temperature has to be in Kelvin
