Thermal efficiency and compression ratio, Mechanical Engineering

Thermal efficiency and compression ratio:

Calculate thermal efficiency and compression ratio for automobile working on otto cycle. If energy generated per cycle is thrice which of rejected during the exhaust. Consider fluid as an ideal gas with = 1.4       

Sol.: Since we have

Where

Wotto = (Q1  - Q2)/Q1

Q1 = Heat supplied

Q2 = Heat rejected

Given that     Q1 = 3Q2

otto = (3Q2  - Q2)/3Q2  = 2/3 = 66.6%                                                   ...(i)

We also have;

Qotto = 1 - 1/(r)  - 1

0.667 = 1/(r)1.4 - 1

r = (3)1/0.4  = 15.59
