2 1. (25 points) A square glass window of width W = 1m is composed of three layers, as shown in the figure. The interior layer and outer layer are glass with thickness t g = 5 mm, while the intermediate layer is an air gap with thickness t a = 5 mm. Heat transfer through air gap is only by conduction. Thermal conductivity of glass and air are k g = 1.4 W/m K and k a = 0.024 W/m K, respectively. A thin coating is deposited on the inner surface of the interior layer and has an absorptivity of α = 0.1. The window is subjected to solar radiation flux G = 1.4 kW/m 2 . The glass and air may be assumed to be perfectly transparent, so that solar energy is only absorbed by the coating. Any other radiation effect, such as the radiation from the room and emission of the coating, can be neglected. Both side of the glass is subjected to convective heat transfer. The inside air temperature is T ,i = 25 ºC, and the outside (ambient) has a temperature of T ,o = 10 ºC and convection coefficient h o = 20 W/m 2 K. At steady state, it is found that the coating has a temperature T c = 40 ºC.
