QUESTION: 1

### A heat pump working on a reversed Carnot cycle has a C.O.P. of 5. lf it works as a refrigerator taking 1 kW of work input, the refrigerating effect will be:

Solution:

or heat rejected = 5 × work done

And heat rejected = refrigeration effect + work input

or, 5 × work input – work input = refrigeration effect

or, 4 × work input = refrigeration effect

or refrigeration effect = 4 × 1 kW = 4 kW

Solution:
QUESTION: 10

When the lower temperature is fixed, COP of a refrigerating machine can be improved by:

Solution:

In heat engines higher efficiency can be achieved when (T1 – T2) is higher. In refrigerating machines it is the reverse, i.e. (T1 – T2) should be lower.

QUESTION: 11

A refrigerating machine working on reversed Carnot cycle takes out 2 kW of heat from the system at 200 K while working between temperature limits of 300 K and 200 K. COP and power consumed by the cycle will, respectively, be:

Solution:

QUESTION: 12

In the system given above, the temperature T = 300 K. When is the thermodynamic efficiency σE of engine E equal to the reciprocal of the COP of R?

Solution:

∴ Rmust act as a Heat pump

QUESTION: 13

The COP of a Carnot heat pump used for heating a room at 20°C by exchanging heat with river water at 10°C is:

Solution:

QUESTION: 14

A refrigeration system operates on the reversed Carnot cycle. The temperature for the system is: Higher temperature = 40°C and Lower temperature = 20°C.

The capacity of the refrigeration system is 10 TR. What is the heat rejected from the system per hour if all the losses are neglected?

Solution:

QUESTION: 15

Assertion (A ): T he COP of an air-conditioning plant is lower than that of an ice plant.

Reason (R): The  tem peratures required in the ice plant are lower than those required for an air-conditioning plant.

Solution:

The COP of an air-conditioning plant is higher than that of an ice plant.

QUESTION: 16

For a given value of TH (Source temperature) for a reversed Carnot cycle, the variation of TL (Sink temperature) for different values of COP is represented by which one of the following graphs?

Solution:

COP is on y-axis and TL on x-axis

⇒ Curve (C) is the corerct representation of above equations since it passes through the origin

QUESTION: 17

Efficiency of a Carnot engine is 75%. If the cycle direction is reversed, COP of the reversed Carnot cycle is

Solution:

If the cycle direction is reversed it will be a heat pump not refrigerator. Students make a common mistake here and calculated (COP)R. We know that the definition of refrigeration is producing a temperature below atmospheric temperature. In heat engine lower temperature is atmospheric temperature. When we reverse this cycle then lower temperature will be atmospheric and higher temperature will be more than atmospheric means it will be a Heat Pump not a refrigerator.

QUESTION: 18

A Carnot heat pump works between temperature limits of 277º C and 27º C. Its COP is

Solution:

[We may put T1 and T2 in ºC or in K but T1 – T2 will be same]

QUESTION: 19

A refrigerator works on reversed Carnot cycle producing a temperature of – 40°C. Work done per TR is 700 kJ per ten minutes. What is the value of its COP?

Solution:

QUESTION: 20

In the above figure, E is a heat engine with efficiency of 0.4 and R is a refrigerator. Given that Q2 + Q4 = 3Q1 the COP of the refrigerator is:

Solution:

For heat engine, efficiency =

And for refrigerator,

W + Q = Q4    or (Q1 – Q2) + Q3 = Q4 or Q1  + Q3 = Q2 + Q4 = 3Q1

Therefore  2 Q1 = Q3

QUESTION: 21

The coefficient of performance (COP) of a refrigerator working as a heat pump is given by:

Solution:

The COP of refrigerator is one less than COP of heat pump, if same refrigerator starts working as heat pump i.e. (COP)heat pump = (COP)refrigerator + 1
