Q.9)

Carnot refrigerator and a heat pump are supplied with equal amount of work. The
refrigerator operates between -27 0C and +27 0C and the heat pump operates between +
45 deg C and + 27 degC. The refrigerator absorbs 4000 kJ/ min at -27 0C. The heat pump
absorbs all the heat rejected by the refrigerator and supplies at 45 deg C. Compute
