A calorimeter is a device used for calorimetry, the science of measuring the heat of chemical reactions or physical changes as well as heat capacity. The word calorimeter is derived from the Latin word calore, meaning heat. Differential scanning calorimeters, isothermal microcalorimeters, titration calorimeters and accelerated rate calorimeters are among the most common types. A simple calorimeter just consists of a thermometer attached to a metal container full of water suspended above a combustion chamber.

How do you use a calorimeter?

A calorimeter is used to keep heat contained in a single place as the calorimeter absorbs very little heat and the amount it absorbs can easily be calculated. To use the calorimeter heat the liquid you want (or cool) and place it in the calorimeter cup and put that in the calorimeter and place the lid on top and the thermometer in the thermometer's hole. There you go. Simple as that. A calorimeter is used to keep heat contained in a single place as the calorimeter absorbs very little heat and the amount it absorbs can easily be calculated.

What does calorimeter mean?

The branch of science which deals with the measurement of heat is called calorimetry. The apparatus used for this purpose is called calorimeter. The calorimeter is a hollow cylinder made of copper with a lead and a stirrer placed in it. The calorimeter is placed in an insulated enclosure so that there is no loss of heat by radiation.
