    "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/thermal-conductivity-plastics-d_1786.html

    Also 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

    can you see that W/m.K is the same as J/s.m.C

    just now i did the experiment.. i think the plastic that i used , is the same material with the window plastic..maybe the fibre glass..

    a lot of 'windows' in plastic are polycarbonate (if very strong) or acrylic Fibreglass is not normally very clear transparent
