Solution 2 The Carnot Cycle: Data Given: Pa = 3 MPa ; Pc = 100 KPa ; Tc = 20 C = 20 + 273 = 293 K ; Compression ratio = 15 = Vc/Va (a) Thermal efficiency = Now, (b) Work output = thermal efficiency * Qh Since process A to B is an isothermal process, hence PV = constant Therefore, Now, process B to C is an adiabatic process, hence,
