Thermal Efficiency

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Thermal efficiency, abbreviated as \(\eta_{th}\), is the fraction of heat that is converted to work or desired output divided by required input.

 

Thermal efficiency Formula

\(\large{ \eta_{th}  =  \frac{ W }{ Q_n }  }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ \eta_{th} }\) = thermal efficiency

\(\large{ Q_n }\) = total energy input from hot source

\(\large{ W }\) = work
