A heat engine operates between a cold reservoir at temperature $\;T_{2}=600 K\;$ & a hot reservoir at temperature $\;T_{1}\;.$ It takes 1000 J of energy from hot reservoir & gives 200 J . What can be the minimum temperature of the hot reservoir

Answer : (a) $\;3000\;K$
Explanation :
$W=1000 J-200 J$
$=800 J$
$Efficiency= \large\frac{800J}{1000J}=0.8$
Since no engine has efficiency more that cannot engine $\;9.8 \leq 1- \large\frac{T_{2}}{T_{1}}$
$T_{1} \geq - \large\frac{T_{2}}{T_{1}}$
$T_{1} \geq 3000 K$
