Calculation of efficiency of reversible cycles in thermodynamics remains a controversial issue. The basic question is this: Do different reversible heat engines, operating between maximum and minimum temperatures TH and TL, respectively, have different values of efficiency? We demonstrate in this article that the answer is in the negative and that all such cycles have equal efficiencies. In other words, no two reversible cycles operating between maximum and minimum temperatures of TH and TL respectively, can have unequal efficiencies.
