What is the ideal efficiency of an automobile engine in which fuel is heated to 2700 K and the outdoor air is 270 K?
Step 1 of 3
Temperature of fuel is heated, T =270F K Temperature of outdoor air,T =270 K a Now we have to find the efficiency of ideal heat engine, We have equation =1- To Ts =1- 270 2700 =0.9 or 90% So ideal efficiency of automobile engine is 90%
