Introduction
Have you used a thermometer? Which is convenient to use digital thermometer or
mercury thermometer ? For some people(ancient people) its better for them to use a
mercury thermometer because its the only device that was existed before but as of today,
our world began to modernized. Scientists have discovered many things that will help us
to live more comfortable and easy and one of that is the digital thermometer.
Using a digital thermometer when you are sick or when determining the body
temperature is much easier than using a mercury thermometer. Why? Because a digital
thermometer uses electronic means to provide a digital display of the temperature
reading. Unlike in a mercury thermometer, you need to look for a thin thread of mercury
that will rise in a tube.
Thermometer is a device or instrument use in measuring a temperature. And both the
digital thermometer and mercury thermometer contains a mercury . That mercury is
poisonous to humans. But from the two(2) devices we presented, its much safer if you
are going to use a digital thermometer. Because such mercury thermometer is hazardous
when the bulb at the bottom of a graduated sealed glass capillary tube which contains a
mercury has been broken. But despite of that its not bad to use a mercury thermometer
but great caution should be taken in using the device especially to the childrens.

Objectives
At the end of this research, the readers are expected to:
1. determine the advantages and disadvantages of using Mercurial and Digital
thermometers.
2. compare the number of people who prefer to use the Mercurial Thermometer than the
Digital Thermometer and vice versa.

Significance of the Study


Modernization is the number one factor why life nowadays became easier and
convenient.
Through the years, inventions of different kinds emerged. Some old inventions were
improved, some are digitalized.
Thermometer, as an example, was modernized. There are many kinds of thermometer
nowadays, but there are these two most commonly used kind. The Mercurial (Mercuryin-glass) Thermometer and the Digital Thermometer.
This study was conducted to help on disseminating information on the use of
Mercurial and Digital thermometer.

Statement of the Problem


This study sought to answer the following questions:
1. What are the advantages and disadvantages of using Mercurial and Digital
thermometer?
2. Which one between the Mercurial and Digital thermometer is mostly preferred to be
used by people.

Review of Related Literature

Practices that promote conceptual understanding rely on a variety of


materials, resources and teacher-student behaviour. These emphasis are on helping people
make sense of using Thermometer. The teachers role is not to impart the knowledge but
rather to guide the childrens learning of the importance of things particularly the
thermometer.
