- A Calorimeter is an instrument used in the process called calorimetry.
- In this process, calorimeter measures the heat produced during chemical reactions or physical. A crude design of a calorimeter consists of metal container full of water suspended above a combustion chamber and attached to the containers is a thermometer, which is used for calculating temperature changes.
- Key techniques for arriving at accurate results starts with a dry calorimeter, measuring solution volumes exactly, and determining change in temperature precisely.
- Calorimeters come in various types depending on the nature of physical or chemical activities to be conducted.
- Some of the most commonly found calorimeters are differential scanning calorimeters, isothermal microcalorimeters, titration calorimeters and accelerated rate calorimeters.
