If the thermometer was in a culture tube it would interfere with the subsequent transfers of culture to plates across the time intervals.

The constriction in the capillary tube does not allow the mercury to flow back into the bulb when the thermometer is taken out of the patient's mouth.

a clinical thermometer works when the heat outside the thermometer pushes the mercury in and up the tube showing the temperature

no ---- The thermometer contain air or nitrogen above the liquid.

The first thermometer was a tube filled with water and air.

The thermometer consists of a very fine glass tube having a very small bore and is called capillary tube. At one end of capillary tube a very thin glass bulb is provided. The bulb is filled with mercury( most of the times) or alcohol The other end of capillary tube is sealed. The capillary tube is protected by a thick glass tube called stem. On the stem are made markings. These markings are called graduations or degrees.

that depends on what type of thermometer. The tube thermometer, the kind with a glass tube with a red liquid in it, uses a small amount of mercury in a very small tube. When the mercury is heated, it expands, pushing further up the tube, as it cools it contracts, going down the tube. A dial thermometer also works on expansion and contraction, but with a coil instead of mercury.

The bore is the tube thing that the liquid is inside. It goes through the center of the whole thermometer.

A bore refers to the extremely fine or narrow tube found in a thermometer. It is called a narrow bore or a capillary.

The red liquid in a thermometer is Mercury, which is usually encased in a glass tube

Heat causes mercury in the thermometer to expand, where as when it is cooled, it contracts.

The liquid inside the thermometer "contracts" when it is placed into something cold. This means that it decreases in volume and increases in density. This is the reason that the thermometer can measure heat: the volume of the liquid inside the thermometer changes as a function of heat, and the amount of liquid in the "tube" of the thermometer changes as a function of volume. Because of this relationship, the level of the liquid in the tube of the thermometer changes as a function of heat.

The construction in the capillary tube does not allow the mercury to flow back into the bulb when the thermometer is taken out from the patient's mouth.

Alcohol expands at a constant rate when heated. As it expands, it rises up the tube on the thermometer.

This error depends on the type of your thermometer; each thermometer has a specific error in-scripted on the tube or label.

A thermometer measures temperature through a glass tube sealed with mercury that expands or contracts as the temperature rises or falls.

The first units of heat (Fahrenheit and Celsius) were created based on the thermometer. Not the other way around. That way, the thermometer would always be accurate. The thermometer works by putting a specific amount of mercury (a strange metallic substance) inside a tube of a specific volume. When the thermometer is heated, the mercury expands, pushing itself up the tube. The mark that it reaches is measured and recorded in degrees.
