The heat transferred through vertical plane layers by free convection was measured as a function of the temperature difference across the layer, the height of the layer, and its thickness. Heat transfer coefficients are reported for fluids having Prandtl numbers from 3 to 30,000. An analysis of the problem by means of integral equations yielded results which differed by no more than 12 percent from the measured data in the range in which the equations were applicable.
