A Carnot refrigerator operating between -10.0 C and 40.0 C extracts heat from the cold reservoir at the rate 300 J/s. What are (a) the coefficient of performance of this refrigerator, (b) the rate at which work is done on the refrigerator and (c) the rate at which heat is exhausted to the hot side?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A. All right for i got the answer to be 5.26 because

T_c/(T_h-T_c)=coefficient of performance

This is correct

For Part B and C

I am unsure how to approach this

please someone help me with an equation....
