Why is lab thermometer can't be used as clinical and vice - varsa?
A clinical thermometer typically shows a maximum reading while a lab thermometer typically shows the temperature right now. When you take a thermometer out of a patients mouth (or other place that you are measuring the temperature) you most often want the maximum temperature to keep showing until you reset the instrument. When using a lab oratory thermometer you want the instrument to react as quickly as possible so that changes (up and down) can be noticed and recorded.

Why should we not use a laboratory thermometer to take our body temperature?
We should not use a labaratory thermometer to measure our body temp• bcuz it doesn't not containa KINK. Clinical thermometers have a kink which stops the mercury from going back to its normal room temp• ,but as labaratory thermometers do not have one,the mercury immediately goes back to normal position and we cannot read the correct temperature

How do you take temperature with a clinical thermometer?
Step 1: Clean your glass thermometer with isopropyl alcohol before using it, then dip the tip into some cool water, or wipe with a tissue, to remove the taste of the alcohol. Step 2: Shake down your glass thermometer until the mercury line is below 96.6 degrees F. Step 3: Slide the tip of the thermometer under one side of the tongue, well into the back of the mouth. Step 4: Close your mouth around the thermometer using your lips - don't clench the glass thermometer with your teeth. Breathe through your nose, with your mouth closed. Step 5: Leave the thermometer under your tongue for 3 full minutes. Step 6: Remove the thermometer and hold it under a bright light, so you can see how high the mercury has risen. An arrow will point to the normal temperature, which is 98.6 degrees F.
Why should a clinical thermometer not be washed in hot water?
The idea is based avoiding use of the thermometer when it is reading "higher" than what it is that is being measured. Let's look at what's happening. If we wash a clinical thermometer in hot water, it will respond to that hot water. That will cause the reading to shoot up well above a hundred degrees. If we then try to use it, it will have to "cool down" under the tongue of the person we're using it on. It is actually being cooled by that person. The thermometer will take a relatively long time to reach the temperature of the individual whose temperature is being measured. And this time will vary, but will be longer than it would be for the thermometer to "come up" to temperature. One of the directions for using these thermometers is to first shake it down until it reads less than 95 degrees or so. If you're starting with a thermometer than has just been washed in hot water, you're not going to be able to shake it down per the directions. You'll have to run it under cool water for a bit to cool it so you can use it.

Why does the clinical thermometer have a pear-shaped cross-section?
well its not exactly pear shaped but you can use the word prismatic... i.e., prism shaped...that shape is going to absorb light rays from outside and magnify whatever is there on the inside..In this case its the mercury..!! so the mercury inside the thermometer gets magnified and you can take the mercury reading easily...you can even observe this when you rotate the thermometer it looks different from every angle...so you take the readings where the mercury and the measurements on the glass are properly magnified.. (or you can avoid all this trouble and buy a digital thermometer...it will even beep and tell you when to take the thermometer out of your mouth !!)
