Hello dear readers.
Here is yet another puzzle from the book Einstein’s Puzzle Universe, a book full of really fun puzzles that will really make you think.
It is likely that you have walked around a cold house barefoot at some time or another in your life. If so, you will probably have noticed that under such conditions, carpeted floors feel warmer to walk on than tile.
It should be clear that this is the case even when there is absolutely no difference between the actual temperatures of the various stretches of flooring. So why do we perceive a difference?
As always, answer is in the comments.
