The explanation of Winter Experiments For Kids
The ice tucked inside the sock wool melted slower than
was out. The coin stuck in the wool was cooled more slowly than was
outdoors. The wool then seems not to heat on one side and keep the heat
other. The submerged wool sock does not sink and small air bubbles
escape. The wool traps the air in its fibers, reduces the heat transfer
and retains heat or cold.
Wool is a thermal insulator. Coats and dresses lessen the passage of heat
the body (37 ° C) to the external environment.

Like wool, polyethylene and cork are
materials that contain air. Can be used
as thermal insulation in homes. We found
panels are made of polyethylene for
double colored walls (in contact with the
external), or plates, particularly when they
separate rooms or barns
basement. In this way reduces the loss
