    A thermometer placed in direct sunlight measures the temperature, sun or something else? Explain.
    In a hurry, exams tommorow.

    It measures the temperature of the thermometer, which will be higher than the surrounding air temperature. Obviously it doesn't get as hot as the sun. Don't be silly.
