The outside temperature affects the body temperature because it the body temperature will try to regulate itself. For example, if the temperature outside is cold, the body will generate heat as much as possible to maintain a core temperature.

Doesn't affect it. 98.5 is the body temperature for normal human.

The temperature of the ball does not affect the surrounding/outside air, but it does affect the air inside the ball.

It depends on whether you're asking about body temperature or outside temperature. For body temperature, that's low to average. For outside temperature, on the other hand, that's rather hot.

The temperature outside and the temperature of magma

The core temperature is the internal temperature of the body and the surface temperature is the outside of the body temperature e.g., skin.

Well the reason it's outside the body is temperature. It would be too warm inside the body, the area it is just outside the body has just the right temperature for sperm production

The temperature needed for the sperms to survive and thrive is lower than the optimum body temperature , hence it is not possible to maintain a lower temperature inside the body hence the testes are located outside the body.

The scrotum is located outside the body, because sperm production requires a cooler temperature then the internal body. So, they are located outside to achieve the right temperature for the production of sperm.

One of the biggest things that affects body temperature is illness. The rise in temperature is due to the body fighting infection. Exposure to extreme temperatures, either hot or cold, can affect the temperature of the body. The time of day can also affect the temperature of your body, which is generally higher later in the day.

Some medication may affect body temperature. It can increase or decrease body temperature. I.e. tylenol may decrease temperature if you have fever. Some stimulant may increase temperature when used, etc.

Chlamydia does not affect the outside of your body, and shows no external signs other than red eye if you get chlamydial conjunctivitis.

For sperm production, the testes need to be slightly cooler than the normal body temperature and to achieve this they descend into the scrotum which is outside the body core. The testes are located outside the body in the scrotum, because sperm production requires a cooler temperature then the internal body temperature of animals.

Reptile's body temperature changes constantly according to the weather. If outside is snowing, the reptile's temperature will drop

as you exercise your body temperature will increase, then to help the body cool off you start to sweat.

The testes are located outside the male body in the scrotum, because sperm production requires a cooler temperature, then the internal body temperature, so the temperature can be regulated better outside the male body, in the scrotum.

Because your body is generating heat faster than it can lose it to the environment.

Reptiles are cold blooded and require the atmospheric heat to regulate their internal body temperature. If the outside temperature were to decrease by 20 c the internal temperature of the reptile would decrease 20C.

The same as the ambiental (outside) temperature.

Insulate the body from the outside temperature.

the organism maintains the same body temperature. Therefore, enviornmental temperature doesn't affect its body temperature.

Temperatures definitely affect the way ants behave. One example is, if it is hot outside they will run faster to their nest to put body heat into the nest for the nighttime.
