Problem 12E

Why are mittens warmer than gloves on a cold day?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 12E Mittens have two compartments, whereas gloves have five, one for each finger. In mittens, four fingers are touching each other, but in a glove each finger is separate. Moreover, there are more air gaps in a mitten, which helps to keep it more insulated with respect to the surrounding than a glove. Therefore, the mittens are warmer.
