Question asked by: appuswathi

Asked on: 25 May 2010

The bench feels really cold.

That is because your body is at a warmer temperature than the metal bench and it conducts heat from you which means that you feel cold.

Then when you touch the bench it feels a little warmer than the rest of it was because it has increased its temperature slightly through the transfer of heat energy from your body to it.
