In a carnot engine, the temperature of reservoir is 527$$^\circ$$C and that of sink is 200 K. If the work done by the engine when it transfers heat from reservoir to sink is 12000 kJ, the quantity of heat absorbed by the engine from reservoir is ______________ $$\times$$ 106 J.
A geyser heats water flowing at a rate of 2.0 kg per minute from 30$$^\circ$$C to 70$$^\circ$$C. If geyser operates on a gas burner, the rate of combustion of fuel will be ___________ g min$$-$$1.
[Heat of combustion = 8 $$\times$$ 103 Jg$$-$$1, Specific heat of water = 4.2 Jg$$-$$1 $$^\circ$$C$$-$$1]
A heat engine operates with the cold reservoir at temperature 324 K. The minimum temperature of the hot reservoir, if the heat engine takes 300 J heat from the hot reservoir and delivers 180 J heat to the cold reservoir per cycle, is ____________ K.
When a gas filled in a closed vessel is heated by raising the temperature by 1$$^\circ$$C, its pressure increases by 0.4%. The initial temperature of the gas is ___________ K.
