3 is the correct Answer.

Swagat said:   5 years ago
COP = (120-30)/30.
= 3.

Pratheesh said:   4 years ago
The Answer should be 3.

Vinay BEL said:   4 years ago
120 - 30 = 90.
Cop=90/30=3 => answer.

I also agree with the answer 3 as here COP of the refrigeration system is asked clearly here REFRIGERATING EFFECT is 90 and work input 30.

Answer will be 3..

120kw is heat rejected(not R.E)by the condenser that heat is the sum of Refrigeration effect(R.E)& The heat added by compressor work.. & COP= R.E/Work Input. So the final answer will be COP=(120-30)/30=3.

@Rakesh Thakur.

Output/input not COP.
This is efficiency.

COP is the reciprocal of efficiency.

120/30=4 this is the right answer.

Point to ponder is whether the COP of the heat pump is asked or COP of the Refrigeration system. The question doesn't define the fact categorically. Assuming heat pump answer is 4, of we assume COP of refrigeration system then given answer is wrong and it must be 3.

The answer is 3.

Here 120 is the heat rejected to the atmosphere, not the heat absorbed from the refrigerated space.

120 - 30 is the heat absorbed from the refigerated space.
The Work input is 30.
