I am given that heat pump is heat a building. Inside temperature is to be maintained at 22 degree celcius, outside is -5.0 celcius. The coefficent of performance is 3.8, and the the pump delivers 7.6MJ of heat each hour to the building. I need to find out at what rate work needs to be applied to run the pump.

## Homework Equations

Now I believe the equation of the the coeffiecient of performance (CP) is equal to:

cp = |Q|/W

Now this is where I am confused, as I don't understand what (if anything) I am supposed to do with the temperatures given. I know cp, and I know Q, so I can solve for W needed to run the pump can't I? I would need to convert the heat produced to be in SI in order to get Watts as a result of course.

thanks for your help!
