# WHY THE THERMOMETER IS KEPT UNDER THE TONGUE?

To record the temperature

Der is mercury in d thermometer. Solids expand wen dey r heated & contract wen dey r culed. Wen v kip d thermometer under d tong d mercury expands & v can no our body temperature.

because it is the best place where we find our exact temperature

This is a very warm part of the body, close to the actual internal temperature of the body, and therefore a more accurate place to check; besides, the norm of 98.6 is based on the oral temperature, so this is a better place to provide a basis of comparison. It is placed under the tongue rather than above to minimize the cooling effect of air being breathed in and out during the reading.

it is  the sensitive part of the body.thermometre can give the most accurate reading in that part.

hope it helps

because it is inside our mouth so it shows the correct temperaturein thermometer of our body

• 0

because temprature is most accurate over here

• 0

it is because the tongue region is closed from all the sides,thats why we also measure the temperature from the underarm and rectum....and of course they are much warmer.

Time travel is the concept of movement (such as by a human) between certain points in time, analogous to movement between different points in space, typically using a hypothetical device known as a time machine, in the form of a vehicle or of a portal connecting distant points in time.

Thermometer is always kept under the tongue because:-
• The intense heat the body has will be in thermal equilibrium with some body parts like tongue,ear,armpit etc.For convenience and accuracy always tongue is selected for measurement.
• There is good supply of blood in tissues under the tongue.

Hi,
So that the air from the surroundings  does not pass over it and cool it thereby giving an incorrect reading ,we need to keep it in our mouth . Keeping under our hand may give a wrong result if we didn't kept correctly .

So that the air from breathing does not pass over it and cool it thereby giving an incorrect reading To give a true reading of inner body heat.Because the intense heat of our body is present under our tongue so that we can measure our whole body temperature

Traditionally rectal temperatures were the most reliable, but patients did not like doing it that way. Under the armpits is not reliable. The mouth is a compromise. Under the tongue keeps us from cooling the thermometer with our breath. Tympanic membrane (eardrum) temperature measurement got popular, but results are not as reliable as oral or rectal. Skin (temporal artery) readings may be above or below rectal temperatures.

Back to tradition. Rectal is best. Okay to substitute oral with the sensor under the tongue and no recent beverage - hot or cold.

It is a right place to check the fiver.

I hope have you got the answer!
Cheers !!!!!!

Because in tongue we get a exact temperature there

The thermometer is kept under the tongue so that the reading which it fives is true .i.e. true reading of the inner body heat.The intense heat of our body is present under our tongue and so it is used under tongue so that we can measure our whole body temperature. So it is kept under the tongue.

The tongue is the hotter part in the body. So , the termometer is kept under the tongue .

Thermometer is kept under tongue so that the reading which it gives is true , i.e. true reading of the inner body heat. ... The underside of the tongue has the most bloodflow and is more accurate than any part of the mouth.
