Problem 29PE

A gas-cooled nuclear reactor operates between hot and cold reservoir temperatures of \(700^{\circ} \mathrm{C}\) and \(27.0^{\circ} \mathrm{C}\).

(a) What is the maximum efficiency of a heat engine operating between these

temperatures?

(b) Find the ratio of this efficiency to the Carnot efficiency of a standard nuclear reactor (found in Example \(15.4\)).
