## Homework Statement

Compute the efficiency of the following cycle:

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know there's an isothermic process between a and b, where heat comes into the system, let's call it Qh.

I also know that between b and c heat will leave the system, let's call it Qc.

The process from c to a is adiabatic.

The efficiency, n, is equal to:

η = 1- Qc / Qh = 1 - Qc / T2(S2-S1)

The problem is that I don't know how to compute Qc...

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Also, if anyone has a good book on the subject I'd appreciate.

Thanks.
