Question

Why is the loss of heat due to radiation minimised in a calorimeter?


Solution

Heat loss due to conduction is prevented by placing the calorimeter box in a well lagged vessel using wool or cork material. Heat loss due to convection is prevented by placing a lid on the box. Heat loss due to radiation is minimized by polishing the box in order to smoothen it.
