(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An ideal engine operating on the Carnot cycle with a minimum temperature of 25°C develops 20 kW and rejects heat a rate of 12 kW. Calculate the maximum cycle temperature and the required heat supply of the cycle.

2. Relevant equations

Qhot/Thot =Qcold/Tcold

3. The attempt at a solution

Since this is ideal entropy must be conserved. Δs hot =Δs cold is as far as I got.

Really stuck with this not sure how to go about it, any help would be greatly appreciated
