# Standing in the Sun is More Pleasant on a Cold Winter Day than Standing in Shade. is the Temperature of Air in the Sun Considerably Higher - Physics

#### Question

Standing in the sun is more pleasant on a cold winter day than standing in shade. Is the temperature of air in the sun considerably higher than that of the air in shade?

#### Solution

The heat coming from the sun to us is through the radiation. On colder winter days, when we stand in shade, we do not get the heat of the sun from the radiation. Though we feel cool in the shade, the temperature of the air in shady as well as non-shady regions is the same.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
