The two surfaces of a window are maintained at specific temperatures. The rate of heat loss through the window and the inner surface temperature are to be determined.
Properties: The thermal conuctivity of the glass is given to be k=0.78 W/m·C. The area of the window and the individual resistances are
A=(1.2m) x (2m) = 2.4 m²
h= 10W/m²C
