Problem 5E

At what common temperature will a block of wood and a block of metal both feel neither hot nor cold to the touch?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 5E The common temperature will be the temperature of your hand, or your body temperature. In this case, no heat will be transferred from your hand to either of the wood block or the metal block. Heat is transferred from a body at a higher temperature to a body at a lower temperature. When both the blocks have the same temperature as that of your hand, none of them will feet cold or hot to touch.
