Problem 106P

One experimental method of measuring an insulating material’s thermal conductivity is to construct a box of the material and measure the power input to an electric heater inside the box that maintains the interior at a measured temperature above the outside surface. Suppose that in such an apparatus a power input of 180 W is required to keep the interior surface of the box 65.0 Co (about 120 Fo) above the temperature of the outer sur-face. The total area of the box is 2.18 m2, and the wall thickness is 3.90 cm. Find the thermal conductivity of the material in SI units.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Chemistry 1: Chapter 1 Notes A highlight & bold= Definition *= conversion factor or unit/formula Bold= Examples & things you should know The Study of Chemistry  Chemistry-The study of matter and the changes that matter undergoes.  Matter- anything that has a mass and occupies space. The Scientific Method  Step 1: Gather data from observations and experiments. An observation is something that you can see it can be a natural phenomenon and measured events. Example: The milk is lumpy so it has spoiled. (Natural phenomenon) There are 5 dogs with 4 legs because of a mutation (measured events). 
