Question

Energy conservation is important for houses. To what fraction is the heat transfer rate reduced by replacing a glass window 3 ft wide and 5 ft high with a smaller window 2 ft wide by 3 ft high? As a typical case, assume the outside temperature in the winter is 25°F and the inside temperature is 75°F. For this example assume U = 5.5 Btu/(hr)(ft2)(°F).
