State similarities and differences between the laboratory thermometer and the clinical thermometer.

Solution: Similarities:
(i) Both thermometers consist of long narrow uniform glass tubes.
(ii) Both have a bulb at one end.
(iii) Both contain mercury in bulb.
(iv) Both use Celsius scale on the glass tube.
Differences:
(i) A clinical thermometer reads temperature C to C while the range of laboratory thermometer is C to C.
(ii) Clinical thermometer has a kink near the bulb while there is no kink in the laboratory thermometer.
Due to kink mercury does not fall down on its own in clinical thermometer.
