Forehead thermometers – non-contact infrared thermometers measure temperature through the forehead
Glass and mercury thermometers – In a mercury thermometer, a glass tube is filled with mercury liquid metal and a standard temperature scale is marked on the tube. As the temperature changes, the mercury expands and contracts, and the temperature can be seen on the scale by a silver line.
What is a no-touch thermometer?
