Define calorimetry.

The measurement of the quantity of heat is called calorimetry.

What are calorimetry and calorimeter?

  • Calorimetry is the process of measuring the amount of heat released or absorbed during a chemical reaction.
  • A calorimeter is a device used to measure the amount of heat involved in a chemical or physical process.
  • Constant Volume (bomb) calorimetry is used to measure a reaction’s heat while holding volume constant and resisting large amounts of pressure.
  • Differential scanning calorimetry is a specific calorimetry type, including both a sample substance and a reference substance, residing in separate chambers.
  • The calorimeter’s temperature change is used to derive the amount of heat transferred by the process under study.
