## Question:

A freezer is maintained at 20{eq}^{\circ} {/eq}F by removing heat from it at a rate of 75 Btu/min. The power input to the freezer is 0.70 hp, and the surrounding air is at 75{eq}^{\circ} {/eq}F. Determine

(a) the reversible power

(b) the irreversibility and

(c) the second-law efficiency of this freezer.

## Freezer:

A freezer is a closed cabinet used to preserve food by maintaining a very low temperature. A freezer is used in households refrigerator to make ice cubes and prevent the melting of ice creams. It keeps the food frozen.
