Download PDF for free

Value of Delta U by calorimetry - definition

The calorimeter is isolated from the rest of the universe, we can define the reactants to be the system and the rest of the calorimeter (bomb and water) to be the surroundings.The change in internal energy of the reactants upon combustion can be calculated :

Measurement of Delta H by calorimetry - definition

We can calculate change in enthalpy by the following formula:

Principle of calorimetry - law

The principle of calorimetry (or principle of mixtures) states that for an insulated system, heat energy lost by the hot body is equal to the heat energy gained by the cold body.

Note: Heat transfer occurs until both the bodies attain the same temperature().
