1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An ideal gas is taken through a Carnot cycle. The isothermal expansion occurs at 250°C, and the isothermal compression takes place at 50.0°C. The gas takes in 1 200 J of energy from the hot reservoir during the isothermal expansion. Find (a) the energy expelled to the cold reservoir in each cycle and (b) the net work done by the gas in each cycle. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Qh=1200J. Qh-W=Qc (absolute values) e(Carnot)=(523-323)/523= 61.9 % (corrected my typo from before) Therefore Qc= .381(1200J)=457J and W = 1200-457=743J Not the correct answer. Qc = 741 according to the solutions manual. ps. Latex seems to be bugged, didn't work in "preview post" mode.
