Heat is transferred to a heat engine from a furnace at a rate of 92MW. If the rate of waste heat rejection to a nearby river is 45MW, determine the net power output and the thermal efficiency for this heat engine.
It is the energy possesses by the system as a result of its elevation with respect to the gravitational acceleration of the earth.
In second law of thermodynamic, which of the following state that no heat engine can have a thermal efficiency of 100% or as far as power plant to operate, the working fluid must exchange heat with the environment as well as the furnace
A rigid tank contains a hot fluid that is cooled while being stirred by a paddle wheel. Initially, the internal energy of the fluid is 850kJ. During the cooling process, the fluid loses 550kJ of heat, and the paddle wheel does 200kJ of work on the fluid. Determine the final energy of the fluid. Neglect the energy stored in the paddle wheel
