The energy input to an engine is 3.00 times greater than the work it performs. What fraction of the energy input is expelled to the cold reservoir? 1 2 3 4 25% 25% 25% 25% 1 2 3 4 5 1. 0.333 2. 0.667 3. 1.00 4. impossible to determine
The work represents one third of the input energy. The remainder, two thirds, must be expelled to the cold reservoir.
