Question 1

A heat engine operates between 600 K and 300 K. In each cycle

reservoir, and does 75 J of work. This heat engine violates:

a The second law but not the first law of thermodynamics.

b The first law but not the second law of the thermodynamics.

c Both, the first law and the second law of thermodynamics.

d Conservation of energy.
