Principles of Tropical Air Conditioning is written with the humid tropics in mind. It is intended to meet the syllabus of the Higher National Diploma (HND) or equivalent professional examinations in Building Services Engineering. It is also designed to cover the air conditioning course content of the new Bachelor of Engineering (B. Eng) degree approved by the National Universities Commission. It is specifically focused in providing design data for tropical air conditioning system design and provides illustrative examples that can give young practitioners enough information to evaluate air conditioning and refrigeration cooling loads and equipment selection with minimum supervision. In addition, Principles of Tropical Air Conditioning serves as quick reference source containing useful design data and parameters often required by the practicing engineer.

I teach this subject to undergrads and find it a very fine book. However I need to know why in solved Example 6.6, the value of MSHG for west orientation (761 in the example) is taken for East and North glasses as well. Can any reader, or the respected Dr Ibe help me with an answer?
