Medical thermometer, artwork

Medical thermometer, computer artwork. This thermometer uses the thermal expansion of mercury (silver liquid) to measure body temperature. The mercury expands from the bulb at lower left, rising up the scale at right. The scale here is in degrees Celsius, and is calibrated so that the thermometer can be used to measure body temperature. Normal human body temperature is 37 degrees Celsius

EDITORS COMMENTS
This artwork showcases a medical thermometer in all its technological glory. Created through computer artistry, this print beautifully captures the intricate workings of this essential diagnostic device. The centerpiece of the image is the mercury-filled bulb located at the lower left corner, which serves as the foundation for measuring body temperature. As body heat interacts with the mercury, it undergoes thermal expansion, causing it to rise up along a meticulously calibrated scale on the right side of the thermometer. This scale is marked in degrees Celsius and enables accurate measurement of body temperature. In fact, 37 degrees Celsius represents normal human body temperature. The artist's attention to detail shines through in every aspect of this illustration – from highlighting each component within the thermometer to accurately depicting how mercury expands when subjected to heat. It seamlessly combines technology and medicine into a single piece that not only celebrates scientific innovation but also emphasizes its crucial role in healthcare. This thought-provoking artwork invites viewers to appreciate both its aesthetic appeal and its representation of an indispensable tool used worldwide for diagnosing fevers and monitoring health conditions. Through this print, Science Photo Library encapsulates both beauty and functionality while reminding us of our reliance on precise measurements for effective medical care.
