    Cold and cool

    Could anybody explain to me the difference between "cold" and "cool". AS far as I understand, both of them are adjectives but when should I use each of them?
    Thank you very much,

    In thermometric terms, 'cold' is a relatively lower temperature than 'cool'. 'Cold' is a more neutral or objective word, where 'cool' is often chosen by the speaker to suggest a pleasurable temperature.
