This is now a heat machine 23Latm our 17 used to return piston at colder temperature 23-17 = 6 = extra work available to turn a wheel. Summary draw in heat at hot temperature and it does work T constant so no ΔE Total work divides into useful work and heat returned to surroundings (waste heat of power plant fame) when compressed at lower T ( T c )
Main equation Work done/heat absorbed at T h = w/q h = (T h –T c )/T h For T h = 400K and T c = 300K w/q h = (400 -300)/400 = ¼ 0.25 of all the heat converted to useful work (anther name – free energy)

2 = ¼ (1000) = 250J Remainder 750 J is waste heat. If pull in 1000J of heat at T h = 400
Greater fraction turned to work if T h is higher Steam engine water vapor 400K surroundings 300K ¼ of energy used Diesel T h =500K w/q h = (500-3)/500 = 200/500 = 0.4

Extreme case solar energy T h = T sun = 6000 • T earth = 300K w/q h = (6000 – 300)/6000 = 57/60 = 0.95 of solar energy received could potentially be turned into work
Use T h = 300K (room temperature) T c = 270K 0C,

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
