The author explains why the body temperature for a human who is healthy can range from 97 degrees Farenheit to 100 degrees Farenheit.
To answer the question about temperature in the human body several examples are provided from physics – pendulums, thermostats and furnace power switches. All of these are provided so that the reader can understand equilibrium. From that author provides a great thinking map to explain how the body maintains equilibrium in the body. This is indeed an interesting approach and well worth reading to understand the question posed by this article.

The author of this article compares the human body to a couple of systems that are in dynamic equilibrium....a pendulum and a furnace thermostat. He uses these as an analogy of the human body constantly changing temperature to reach a dynamic equilibrium. He also includes an excellent chart of the human body systems working together to maintain dynamic equilibrium.
