Homework Help: Physics - freezing tongue

Posted by Mary on Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 9:22am.

I have read through my chapter and still don't understand why your tongue sticks to a freezing metal pole. The question is, why doesn't your tongue freeze to wood at the same temp it will freeze to metal? I know that wood is a better insulator, but am not sure how that fits into the picture. thanks!
