A kink is clinical thermometer prevents the mercury from flowing back into the bulb when the thermometer is taken out of the patient’s mouth, so that the temperature can be noted conveniently.

Samacheer Kalvi Guru 7th Science Book Back Answers Question 5.
Why do we jerk a clinical thermometer before we measure the body temperature?
The jerk to the thermometer will allow the mercury level to flow into the bulb so that the mercury level is below the normal temperature.

Heat And Temperature Class 7 Questions And Answers Question 1.
Why do we use mercury in thermometers? Can water be used instead of mercury? What are the problems in using it?

1. We use mercury in thermometers as they remain in liquid form even with a change of temperature in it.
2. A small change in the temperature causes change in volume of a liquid.
3. Water cannot be used as a thermometric liquid, because it is not helpful to measure below 0°C and above 100°C.
4. Water is transparent. So it makes the reading of the scales of the thermometer more difficult, water wets the glass tube so its steady is glass tube.
5. Due to this constraints it is not used as a thermometric liquid.

Heat And Temperature Answer Key Question 2.
Swathi kept a laboratory thermometer in hot water for some time and took it out to read the temperature. Ramani said it was a wrong way of measuring temperature. Do you agree with Ramani ? Explain your answer.
Yes, I agree with Ramani.

Similarities between laboratory thermometer and the clinical thermometer:

1. Both clinical and laboratory thermometers have long, narrow and uniform glass tubes.
2. Bulbs contain mercury.
3. Both have Celsius scale.

Differences:

Laboratory thermometer:

1. Laboratory thermometer is generally scaled from -10°C to 11 CPC.
2. Mercury level falls on its own as no kink is present.
3. Temperature is read while keeping the thermometer in the source of temperature, e.g. a liquid or any other thing.
4. No need to give jerk to lower the mercury level.
5. It is used to take temperature in laboratory.

Clinical thermometer:

1. Clinical thermometer is scaled from 35°C to 42°C or from 94°F to 108°F.
2. Mercury level does not fall on its own, as there is a kink near the bulb to prevent the fall of mercury level.
3. Temperature can be read after removing the thermometer from armpit or mouth.
4. To lower the mercury level jerks are given.
5. It is used for taking the body temperature.

VII. Higher Order Thinking questions:

Question 1.
What must be the temperature in Fahrenheit, so that it will be twice its value in Celsius?
According to the question, F = 2C and C1 = C
F = $$\frac { 9C }{ 5 }$$ + 32
