    I have solved this problem by calculating different thermal resistances and heat loss then by using it we can calculate interior temperature.

    As given in problem
    There is no radiation heat transfer so there will be no effect of e.
    Interior heat transfer is given as
    hi = 40 W/m2 K
    ho = 30 W/m2 K
    So overall heat transfer coefficient
    1/h = 1/ hi + 1/ho
    = 1/40 +1/30
    = 7/120
    h = 120/7
    h = 17.14 W/m2 K
    Now we will calculate thermal resistances
    Then thermal resistance at surrounding will ...

    Solution Summary

    The thermal circuit of brick and plaster heat transports are examined. The circuit combining brick and plasters are provided.
