(Originais Teachy 2023) - Question Hard of Physics

During winter, a family decides to install double-pane windows in their house to help maintain the indoor temperature. The windows are made up of two layers of glass, each 4mm thick, with a 1cm gap of air in between. They know that the thermal conductivity of glass is 0.84 W/(m.K) and that of air is 0.024 W/(m.K). The outer surface of the window is at a temperature of -10°C, while the inner surface is at a comfortable room temperature of 20°C. What is the rate of heat transfer through a window that is 1m by 1m?
a.
The rate of heat transfer through a 1m by 1m double-pane window is approximately 13600.85 W.
b.
The rate of heat transfer through a 1m by 1m double-pane window is approximately 15000.75 W.
c.
The rate of heat transfer through a 1m by 1m double-pane window is approximately 12000.65 W.
d.
The rate of heat transfer through a 1m by 1m double-pane window is approximately 12600.95 W.
e.
The rate of heat transfer through a 1m by 1m double-pane window is approximately 11000.45 W.

During a cold winter day, a cast iron skillet and a wooden cutting board are both left in a chilly room that is maintained at a temperature of 5 degrees Celsius. After a few hours, you touch both the skillet and the cutting board. You immediately feel that the skillet is much colder than the wooden board. However, a thermometer shows that both the skillet and the wooden board are at the same temperature of 5 degrees Celsius. Based on your understanding of thermal conductors and insulators, explain why the skillet feels colder to the touch than the wooden board even though they are at the same temperature.

Imagine a situation where you have two bar magnets. The first magnet has its North pole facing the South pole of the second magnet. You know that the magnetic field lines emerge from the North pole and enter the South pole. Now, you decided to place a small iron nail midway between the two magnets. In which direction will the iron nail align itself in response to the magnetic field lines present at its location, and why?
