The window must be 50 square feet in area with a maximum heat loss of 500 watts. You are to assume that in the winter the indoor to outdoor temperature difference across the glass could reach 70F. You must determine which option to choose based on the following data of available window options:
Option A: For \$450 per unit, you can purchase a window with double glass spaced ¼ apart. The U-value
of this window is 0.649.
Option B: For \$650 per unit, you can purchase a window with double glass spaced ½ apart. The U-value
of this window is 0.581.
Option C: For \$850 per unit, you can purchase a window with triple glass spaced ¼ apart. The U-value
of this window is 0.469.
Which option is the most economical, considering price and conformance to the 500-watt heat-loss limitation?
A. Option A C. Option C
B. Option B D. None of the options are acceptable.7. Which of the schematics in Figure A-2 shows a break in the circuit? (View Figure A-2 to answer questions 7, 8 & 9 by using link: http://www.rarebitprojects.com…
