In a house the temperature at the surface of a window is 25 ¡ãC. The temperature outside at the window surface is 5.0 ¡ãC. Heat is lost through the window via conduction, and the heat lost per second has a certain value. The temperature outside begins to fall, while the conditions inside the house remain the same. As a result, the heat lost per second increases. What is the temperature at the outside window surface when the heat lost per second doubles?

  1. To conduct twice the heat through the window, the temperature drop across the window glass must double from 20 C to 40 C. That will require that outside temperature becomes -15C

  2. -15C is right but how did you get it?
