Investigating Comfort Temperatures and Heat Transfer in Sleeping Bags
Hill, Trevor; Hill, Lara
Physics Education, v52 n4 Article 045003 Jul 2017

Based on Newton's law of cooling, we present a simple inexpensive test and model to check manufacturers' claims on the temperature performance of a range of modern sleeping bags.
