Master plot for estimation of heat loss for the experiments in an enclosure heated from below and cooled from above. The solid line is obtained from conduction experiment with the enclosure placed upside-down. The dashed line is heat loss obtained from a conduction curve and will be employed for net heat flux in convection experiments.
