What would you like to do?
Because when your skin is wet the evaporation of the moisture takes heat away from your skin and makes it feel cold. When you are dry you do not have this evaporation happening so you feel warmer in comparison. Your body produces sweat for this very same reason to help you cool off on a hot day.

Why do warm dry climates feel cooler than warm humid climates even though the temperatures may be the same?
Answer . When it is 'humid', or 'muggy', that means that less of your body's perspiration is evaporating off. Evaporating is a cooling process, because the perspiration ab…sorbs heat in the process. When it's dry, more of your perspiration is evaporating, therefore giving you a little extra cooling.
Why does the same room temperature inside your home feel cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter?
Answer The said temperature is cooler compared to the surrounding environment in the Summer and warmer in the winter. Just because there is a temperature differe…nce between the environment and the said temperature, it creates the illusion that it is cooler in the Summer and warmer in the Winter.
Because if you walk into cold room which is dry , the sweat on the surface of the skin evaporates faster than it would in moist air at the same temperature , drawing mor…e heat from the body. Good question.
Why a piece of tile or stone feels colder than a piece of wood even though both are at the same temperature?
Because a piece of stone or tile feels colder than a piece of wood because the specific heat of a piece of tile or stone is more than the specific heat of woo,even though both… are at the same temperature
If you place a piece if Iron and a piece of polystyrene foam in a fridge for 2 hours, then they will both be at the same temperature. If you take the Iron out and hold… it in one hand and the hold the foam in your other hand then the foam will feel warm and the the iron will feel cold. This is because the foam does not conduct heat away from your hand very well while the iron does.
They are cooler than your sin. You run at a toasty 37 degrees celcius. The metal will be a little bit cooler than that anyway, but that does not account for it being so cold. …Metals are really good conductors (due to free electrons, but that dosen't reaaly matter right now). The metal conducts away the heat from your hand making it feel cold, even though it won't be too much cooler than you. Non-metals like plastic and wood are bad conductors so it cant conduct away the hesa that you give it from your hand very quickly.
because we went from something warm in the shower to the cold air particles outside of the shower
You can use the metal and plastic mugs to hold cold drinks why does the metal mug feel colder even though the temperatures are the same?
Metal has a higher thermal conductivity, which means it moves heat much faster to / from your hand. So your hand feels "closer" to the contents in the mug.
Why does when you first step out of the shower you feel cold but as you are dry you feel warmer even though the room temperature does not change?
Evaporative cooling. As the water evaporates from your body it takes with it a good deal of energy (heat) as the latent heat of vaporisation
Why does a carpeted floor feel warmer to bare feet than tile or wood even though all surfaces are the same temperature?
Largely because the skin of the feet is in contact with the floor over practically all of their plantar (their sole) surfaces whereas, on carpet, far less foot sole surfac…e is actually in contact with actual solid material--the balance not in contact with solid material instead being in contact with air (that is, with carpet-foot-interface-retained air pockets) which act as insulators as opposed to heat sinks (where sinking is the heat transfer action by which solid flooring material absorbs heat from the feet, and renders them actually as well as tactilely cooler. In addition to the effect of greater heat transfer due to greater contact area and less insulation against heat transfer, the sense of greater hard floor coolness is augmented also by the fact that far more heat sensing nerve endings are exposed to skin surface temperature changes during skin floor contact than is possible during skin-carpet contact. In fact it would be largely the case, that most nerve endings would remain in closer proximity to air temperatures when standing on carpet. In summary, the cooling effect of solid flooring is not only a perception, the perceived cooling is also the result of actual, more efficient, heat transfer from feet to floor as a result of far greater degree of contact that is possible between feet soles and a bare floor as opposed to between feet and a carpeted floor. While it is intuitive to perceive the solid floor's cooling advantage as being a result of greater heat "conductivity," it is more accurate to say that the solid floor can conduct "feet" heat faster and in greater quantity owing, respectively, to far greater sole-floor surface contact as well as to the far greater mass, and concomitant heat absorption capacity, of the solid floor material. The carpet's far smaller mass is not able to absorb nearly so much heat from the feet as is the much greater mass of solid flooring.
yes, it might make him realize how much he cares about you and feels the same way AND this is coming from my own experience most guys want sex if u ask a guy out he would say …yes as long as he got SOME sexual intercourse even if he doesn't love you but doesnt have anything against you he will say yes (most ppl i know would anyway) but they are probably wanting a blowjob or something
Tile is smooth getting a large contact area.A rug contains lots of air pockets, acting as thermal insulators. This allows cool tile to conduct heat away much faster than a coo…l rug. If they were both warmer than body temperature the tile would feel warmer for the same reason.
Why does polystyrene feel warmer than a copper block even though both are in the same room temperature?
Polystyrene feels warmer than a copper block because it is softer so your hand instantly thinks it is warmer. Really in a way it's a bit like having an optical illusion done t…o your body.
If you use tapwater, you may feel cold but if you use a heater, you wont feel cold.
Why does a piece of iron feel colder than a piece of wood even though they are both in the same temperature?
Wood is a porous material in which a lot of air is trapped, and as a result, it is a poor conductor of heat. Iron is a denser material which is a good conductor of heat. So wh…en you touch iron, heat flows easily from your finger into the colder piece of iron. Heat flows much more slowly from your finger into a piece of wood, even if the wood is exactly the same temperature as the iron.
Your breath should be warmer than room temperature unless you are a zombie! I am guessing you are asking why does blowing on your wet finger feel colder even though your breat…h is warm? Moving air allows the water on a wet finger to evaporate faster. Evaporation of a liquid to a gas requires energy and the water is taking that energy from your finger. Less energy means a lower temperature and your finger gets cold.
