where the sum in the denominator is over the layers. If L g is the thickness of a glass layer, L a is the thickness of the air layer, k g is the thermal conductivity of glass, and k a is the thermal conductivity of air, then the denominator is 22 . g ga ag a ga a g LL k L k L L kk k k k + =+ = ¦ Therefore, the heat conducted per unit area occurs at the following rate: () () () () () () ( ) () cond 3 2 51.1 C 0.026W m K 1.0W m K 2 2 3.0 10 m 0.026W m K 0.075m 1.0W m K 18W m .
