39. The coefficient of performance for a refrigerator is given by K= |QL|/|W|, where QLis the energy absorbed from the cold reservoir as heat and Wis the work done during the refrigeration cycle, a negative value. The first law of thermodynamics yields QH+ QL– W= 0 for an integer number of cycles. Here QHis the energy ejected to the hot reservoir
