and the second law that follows Example 20.10 (Section 20.7) says

that the increase in entropy in an irreversible process is associated with energy becoming less available. Consider a Carnot cycle that

(b) Apply the result of part (a) to 1.00 kg of water initially at a temper- ature of 373 K as the heat source for the engine and T c = 273 K. How much total mechanical work can be performed by the engine until it stops? (c) Repeat part (b) for 2.00 kg of water at 323 K.
