Homework Help: Conduction of Heat through A Material

  1. Feb 5, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    .005 m of Ice is in contact with .0015 m of Aluminum. The temp of the Ice is -10.0 degrees C, and the temp of the Aluminum is -25.0 degrees C.

    I need to calculate the heat per second per square meter that is conducted through the Ice - Aluminum combination

    2. Relevant equations

    The equation for the conduction of heat through a Material is (see attachment) Q= ((kA Change in T)t)/L

    I know that the answer needs to be in J/(s*m^2), but I am unsure how to get to that point.

    Thanks for any help!
