Question

When standing barefoot in a cool room having both carpet and tiles flooring, the tile feels colder than the carpet. What can be the reason for this?


Solution

The tile feels colder because it is a good heat conductor and it moves heat rapidly away from your skin that is warmer than air temperature. The rug would be a heat insulator. The rug slows down the flow of the heat which would make it feel warm.
