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

Forgive me for any indiscretions my first post.

The problem is to find the Joules of heat per hour produced in a motor that is 75% efficient and requires 0.250hp to run it.

2. Relevant equations

efficiency=1-(Qc/Qh)

3. The attempt at a solution

1. convert hp to Watts; 0.250hp* 746W/hp *75 percent=139W

At this point the answer is wrong and I don't know why. I have tried for hours to solve this please help!
