How much energy is lost through a glass picture window (1.5 m x 1.0 m x 0.005 m) on a cold winter day? The thermal conductivity of glass is 0.8 W/(m•K). The temperature difference between the inner and outer surface of the glass is 0.5 o C. o Q T kA t x = = I T in = 20 C T out = -10 o C | I | = 0.8 W/(m•K) x 1.5 m x 1.0 m x 0.5 K /0.005 m = 120 W In one day, 120 J/s x 3600s/hr x 24 h/day = 1.04 x 10 7 J T in = 20 o C T out = -10 o C 19.5 o C xx
