# What would jumping into a pool and feeling cold be called? Conduction, or convection?

This was another question from my son's workbook. It said:

Ever jumped into a pool on a warm day and still felt cold, even after measuring the
temperature of the water with a thermometer and finding that it is the same temperature as
the air? Would this be conduction, convection or radiation then?


Interesting question. When he asked me, I immediately thought of convection, as that is 'conduction' of fluids, right? But I wasn't too sure, and I asked some friends. Both conduction and convection came as answers.

Which one is it? Why?
