Question Description:

20.50

From a hot reservoir at a temperature of T1, a Carnot engine A takes an input heat of 5550 J, delivers 1750 J of work, and rejects heat to a cold reservoir that has a temperature of 503-degrees K. This cold reservoir at 503-degrees K also serves as the hot reservoir for engine B, which uses the rejected heat of the first engine as input heat. Engine B also delivers 1750 J of work, while rejecting heat to an even colder reservoir that has a temperature of T2. Find the temperatures (a) T1 and (b) T2. Topic: Thermodynamics; Carnot’s Principle and the Carnot Engine.
