(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

a person with a body temp of 37 degrees stands on snow with a temp of 0 degrees

each of there shoes has a sole 1cm thick with an area of 300cm^2 and a 0.2 thermal conductivity

what is the magnitude and direction of heat flow

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

right well obviously the direction is into the ground, heat travels from hot to cold

now im not sure if you need to calculate the volume of "sole" which the heat is being conducted through or not and that has me stumped as its the first hurdle at which im clueless!
