Suppose Heat Engine Is Connected To Two Energy

Suppose a heat engine is connected to two energy reservoirs, one a pool of molten aluminum (660°C) and the other a block of solid mercury (“38.9°C). The engine runs by freezing 1.00 g of aluminum and melting 15.0 g of mercury during each cycle. The heat of fusion of aluminum is 3.97 X 105 J/kg; the heat of fusion of mercury is 1.18 X 104 J/kg. What is the efficiency of this engine?
