Heat Transfer Investigation

  1. Aug 28, 2010 #1
    hi,

    We had to do a prac. last week to investigate the effect of insulator materials on the heating of buildings.



    we did the prac, but unfortunately we didn't save our graph which shows the change in temperature with respect to time, for each of the different insulator.

    we had a model house, with a heat probe inside to measure the inside temperature, the insulator were put inside he roof. and a 100 watts heat source was put directly on top of the roof. we ran each of the experiment for 20 minutes.

    So now i need help in writing the prac. report. How do i show the effect of different insulator on heating of building, from the result i have.

    these are the known data for each of the experiments with different insulator;

    Initial temperature (temperature inside the house before heating)

    Final temperature (temperature inside the house after heating)

    100 watt, heat source

    all experiment ran for 20 minutes.

    the area inside the model house.

    the mass of each of the insulator used...

    .................................................................................................

    so i need help with writing up this report. we don't necessarily need to use any formula's. we just need to show the effect of different insulator material.

    if we had a graph it would've been easy to just refer to the graph.(but we don't have any graph)
