A 100-W lightbulb generates 95 W of heat, which is dissipated through a glass bulb that has a radius of 3.2cm and is 0.60mm thick.

What is the difference in temperature between the inner and outer surfaces of the glass?

You need to know the thermal conductivity of the glass.

the thermal conductivity of glass is 0.84 J/(s*m*C)

what do i do with this

Suppose you knew the temperature difference, the dimensions of the glass bulb and the glass thickness. How would you use that to find the rate of heat flow through the glass?
