Second, the engine block cannot beallowed to go over a certain temperature. Third, any practicalengine has friction, incomplete burning of fuel, and limits setby timing and energy transfer by heat.Q22.2It is easier to control the temperature of a hot reservoir. If itcools down, then heat can be added through some externalmeans, like an exothermic reaction. If it gets too hot, then heatcan be allowed to “escape” into the atmosphere. To maintain
