In an electrically heated home, the temperature of the ground in contact with a concrete basement wall is 13.0 oC. The temperature at the inside surface of the wall is 21.1 oC. The wall is 0.19 m thick and has an area of 8.3 m2. Assume that one kilowatt hour of electrical energy costs $0.10. How many hours are required for one dollar's worth of energy to be conducted through the wall?

I'm using q=kAdT/s and getting 601.5 watts. I'm having trouble figuring out the hours requred. please help
