Homework Help: A thermaldynamics problem.(Carnot engine&equilibrium temperature)

  1. Jul 23, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The room has temperature T,and outside of temperature is T0. Due to Carnot engine located in the room, this engine makes to give quantity of heat(Power P) outside -> inside.

    And the room loses heat which ratio is a(T-T0).(a is just constant.)

    What's the equilibrium temperature?

    (This problem is not complete. I couldn't memorize totally this problem.

    But outline of this problem maybe correct.)

    2. Relevant equations

    I think Entropy of Carnot engine(ds).

    (This problem is not on the book.

    It's only a problem which I saw at once.)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I try to get solution through Entropy of Carnot engine maybe related with this problem.

    But I'm not sure I'm wrong or correct.
