Unformatted text preview: Carnot Principles o Thermal efficiency of a reversible heat engine will be greater than the thermal efficiency of an irreversible one th, rev > th, irrev o The thermal efficiency of any thermal heat engine depends on the temperatures of the reservoirs th,rev = g(T H , T L ) th, A = 1 Q 2 /Q 1 = f(T 1 ,T 2 ) th, B = 1 Q 3 /Q 2 = f(T 2 ,T 3 ) th, C = 1 Q3/Q 1 = f(T 1 ,T 3 ) th, C = th, A th, B T H = T 1 T L = T 3 Q 1 Q 1 A C Q 2 T 2 Q 3 B Q 1 p 2 A= Work output 4 3 v f(T 1 ,T 3 ) = f(T 1 ,T 2 ) f(T 2 ,T 3 ) (T 1 )/ (T 3 ) = [(T 1 )/ (T 2 )][ (T 2 )/ (T 3 )] Q1/Q2 = T1/T2 Q1/Q3 = T1/T3 Q2/Q3 = T2/T3 COP Ref = 1/[(Q H /Q L ) 1] COP Ref, Carnot = 1/[(T H /T L ) 1] COP HP = 1/[1 (Q L /Q H )] COP HP, Carnot = 1/[1 (T L /T H )] W net = ( th )(Q H )...
