Homework Help: College Physics

Posted by Becky on Friday, October 7, 2011 at 11:36pm.

The top layer of your goose down sleeping bag has a thickness of 5.0 cm and a surface area of 1.0 m^2. When the outside temperature is -18 degrees celcius you lose 24 Cal/hr by heat conduction through the bag (which remains at a cozy 34 degrees celcius inside). Assume that you're sleeping on an insulated pad that eliminates heat conduction to the ground beneath you. What is the thermal conductivity of the goose down?
