1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A thermometer touches the floor and the other touches a wool carpet lying on the floor. what will the two thermometers show, the same or different temperatures 2. Relevant equations Two materials touching each other the heat moves from the warm to the cold one 3. The attempt at a solution I heard that the thermometer won't feel the heat if it doesn't pass to it. so, is it true that if i touch a warm isolating material like a ceramic brick with a thermometer it won't show the real temperature?
