How much heat is lost through a 3’× 5' single-pane window with a storm that is exposed to a 60°F temperature differential?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Heat lost Q is the product of U-value, temperature difference ∆T and area A. Therefore,

Step 2

R-value of single pane window with a storm is equal to 2. Therefore, U-value whi...
