Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"Plastic" is not a material  it covers a very large range of different chemical compounds, with different values for conductivity. If you are concerned about units look at you units  can you see another value for J/s ? Try this site for typical values http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/thermalconductivityplasticsd_1786.html

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Also re units: C is not really used for temperature intervals  it is a value on the Celsius scale. K is the correct unit to use BUT 1K = 1C so you can change C to K in your units

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just now i did the experiment.. i think the plastic that i used , is the same material with the window plastic..maybe the fibre glass..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a lot of 'windows' in plastic are polycarbonate (if very strong) or acrylic Fibreglass is not normally very clear transparent
