A company that produces pulsed gas heaters claims its efficiency is approximately 90%. If the engine operates between 250 degrees C and 25 degrees C, what is its maximum thermodynamic efficiency?
I got 43%:
The Carnot cycle is considered to be the most efficient heta-engine cycle.
Its efficiency is given by:
e = ...
Solution shows calculations to find the maximum thermodynamic efficiency of a gas heater.
