Question: A heat pump shown in Figure P22 26 is essentially

A heat pump, shown in Figure P22.26, is essentially an air conditioner installed backward. It extracts energy from colder air outside and deposits it in a warmer room. Suppose that the ratio of the actual energy entering the room to the work done by the device’s motor is 10.0% of the theoretical maximum ratio. Determine the energy entering the room per joule of work done by the motor, given that the inside temperature is 20.0°C and the outside temperature is "5.00°C
