Throughout this problem use L_f = 3.34x10^5 J/kg for the heat of fusion for water.

During this time, how much work W is performed by the engine?

I dont know where to start...any help please?

What is the efficiency of this engine? You are able to find a numerical value here.

Once you have that, how is the efficiency related to the work done?

I still dont see how i can get the efficiency without any temperatures or heat values

Tc=273 k Th= 373 k

n = 1- (Tc/Th)

n = 1- (273/373)

n = 1-.73

n = .27 or 27%

n = 1- (Tc/Th)

n = 1- (273/373)

n = 1-.73

n = .27 or 27%

n= 1-Tc/Th = W/Qh

how do i get Qh to get W?

how do i get Qh to get W?

You know that the exhaust melts a certain amount of water, so from that you can find the heat lost.
