Rank in order, from largest to smallest, the work Wout
performed by these four heat engines.

1.   W b > Wa > Wc > W d
2.   W b > Wa > Wb > W c
3.   W b > Wa > Wb = W c
4.   W d > Wa = Wb > W c
5.   W d > Wa > Wb > W c

It’s a really hot day and your air conditioner is broken.
Your roommate says, “Let’s open the refrigerator door and
cool this place off.” Will this work?

1. Yes.
2. It might, but it will depend on how hot the room is.
3. No.

The area enclosed within a pV curve is

1. the work done by the system during one
complete cycle.
2. the work done on the system during one
complete cycle.
3. the thermal energy change of the system during
one complete cycle.
4. the heat transferred out of the system during one
complete cycle.
