My friend and I have been having a friendly heated discussion as to whether or not hands act as an insulator to a hot drink or do just the opposite and cool it. I am of the opinion that they act just as a “coffee sleeve” would and insulate it and prevent the coffee from losing its heat. My friend on the other hand insists that the coffee loses its heat faster through the median of the hands rather than through the air. Which is it?
Re: When hands are around a hot drink do they insulate it or cool it?
