Problem 4E

If 70°F air feels warm and comfortable to us, why does 70°F water feel cool when we swim in it?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 4E If there is a temperature difference between our body and water, then heat will flow from our body to water. That means, we will lose heat and water will gain it. This loss of heat of our body makes us feel cool. But the same is not true for air. Air is a poor conductor of heat. Therefore, heat transfer between our body and air is also very negligible. Our body 0 does not lose any significant heat to air. This is the reason why70 F air feels warmer than the same temperature of water.
