Coefficient of performance COP of refregirator is

img

where TC = 4o C  = (273+4) K = 277 K is cold source temperature and 

TH = 30o C = ( 273+30) K =  303 K is hot source temperature .

Hence COP of refregirator is

COP = 277 / ( 303 - 277 ) = 277 / 26 = 10.65

If QC is heat energy removed from cold source and W is work done , then coefficient performance is

COP = QC / W 

Hence Work done  W = QC / COP = [ ( 600 × 4.2 ) / 10.65 ] J = 237 J

Hence required power = 237 W
