Chapter 22 657 *P22.63 Like a refrigerator, an air conditioner has as its purpose the removal of energy by heat from the cold reservoir. Its ideal COP is COP K 20 K Carnot = == T TT c hc 280 14 0 .

(c) The air conditioner operates in a cycle, so the entropy of the working fluid does not change. The hot reservoir increases in entropy by Q T h h = × 10 0 10 3 600 300 120 10 3 5 . .
