What is a thermometer thread?
Mercury expands with a rise in temperature, causing a thin thread of mercury to rise in the tube, which is what the Thermometer is made of.
What metal is on the tip of a digital thermometer?
The tip of the Thermometer has armistor in it. It is made from ceramic and has a temperature sensitive coating on it. It’s covered with a cap so it can’t be seen outside. The cap can be made from metal or steel.

What are the lines on a thermometer called?
These are fractions of a second. There are lines between the small numbers and the larger ones. The first thing you have to do is look at the numbers and figure out what the temperature is doing.
Do all digital thermometers have mercury in them?
Mercury is not found in Digital Thermometers. The temperature is measured using the thermistor inside the tip of the thermometer. They can give quick and accurate results.
Which is more accurate digital or mercury thermometer?
Both laboratory and clinical studies show that the accuracy of the two types of thermometers is the same.
When did they stop selling mercury thermometers?
In the last decade, 20 states have banned the use of mercury in medical devices. Many drugstores now only carry sterile digital replacements or less accurate ones with red bulbs.
Which thermometer is considered to be unsafe to use?

How do I know if my digital thermometer is accurate?
If you want to keep the stem from touching the glass, put it in the ice water at least an inch deep. Wait for the temperature to register, it usually takes a few minutes. If the temperature is less than 32 F or less than 0 C, the temperature is not accurate.
What is a thermometer used for?
A thermometer is used to measure the temperature. It is possible to measure the temperature of food, water, or air. The temperature can be measured in Celsius, Fahrenheit, and kelvin. The metric system has two scales, the Celsius scale and the metric system.
Do forehead thermometer strips work?
The evidence shows that strip thermometers aren’t as accurate as traditional mercury glass ones. In around 4% to 10% of cases, parents will use a forehead strip on a child with a high temperature to make them believe it’s normal.
