In the video above, you can see a thermometer that reads “1” for 1/4 inch and “1/2” for 2 inches.
That means a “1 inch” temperature would read “1-1/4” and “2 inches” would read 1-2/4.
“If you were to measure your child using an electronic temperature, it would look something like this: “1 inches” = 1/2 inch” = 3 inches” is about right?
The thermometer’s readings are actually a bit different from the real thing.
An electronic thermometers are designed to read a temperature from the outside of a piece of paper or metal, not a real object.
The reason the thermometer reads “2” instead of “1”, the reason you get a reading of “2-1-2” rather than “2,1-4” is because the inside of the thermometers is designed to be “warm” or “cool” (the outside is not) and to be able to measure a temperature on the inside.
The “2”-sized thermometers that we’re using in the video are not thermometers designed for measuring temperatures inside a body.
Instead, they’re designed to measure the temperature inside the thermocouple.
An ideal thermocoupler is the type of thermocupler that uses the thermistor to convert the ambient temperature inside your body into a precise reading.
These thermocontracters can be purchased from a hardware store or online.
