THE TRANSMITTANCE OF LIGHT

23

RESISTANCE INDICATES HOW EFFECTIVE ANY MATERIAL IS AS ________

AN INSULATOR

24

R IS MEASURED IN...

HOURS NEEDED FOR 1 BTU TO FLOW THROUGH 1 SF OF A GIVEN THICKNESS OF A MATERIAL WHEN THE TEMP DIFFERENCE IS 1 DEGREE F

25

THE GREATER THE R VALUE, THE ________ (MORE/LESS) EFFECTIVE THE INSULATOR

MORE

26

FACTORS AFFECTING RESISTANCE OF WALL CONSTRUCTION

CONDUCTORS, AIR FILMS, AIR SPACES

27

DEFINE SENSIBLE HEAT

FORM OF ENERGY THAT FLOW WHENEVER THERE IS A TEMPERATURE DIFFERENCE -- RESULTS IN CHANGE IN TEMP

28

DEFINE LATENT HEAT

HEAT THAT IS USED TO CHANGE THE STATE OF (EVAPORATE OR CONDENSE) WATER -- RESULTS IN A CHANGE IN MOISTURE CONTENT

29

TOTAL HEAT FLOW IS

THE SUM OF SENSIBLE AND LATENT HEAT FLOWS

30
