Anatomy Homeostasis Project

The thermometer in the oven compares the temperature and realizes that the temperature is 10 degrees below the intended temperature.
So is it positive or negative feedback?
The process of the stove turning on the element to return the heat to the proper temperature is an example of negative feedback. It is negative because the temperature is lower than what is needed, so the element turns on to make the temperature go up. You have the temperature go up because it went down, making it negative feedback.
