1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The electric output of a power plant is 750 MW. Cooling water flows through the power plant at the rate 1.0*10^8 L/hr. The cooling water enters the plant at 16 degrees C and exits at 27 degrees C. What is the poer plant's thermal efficiency?
2. Relevant equations
W = Qh - Qc
3. The attempt at a solution
tried to solve for Qc in order to find Qh but couldn't figur out how to get Qc from 1.0*10^8 L/hr to MW.

That will give you Qc which will then enable you to find Qh and the efficiency.
