The Structure and Function of Calorimeters
A calorimeter is a device, or machine, used for calorimetry. Calorimetry is the process of measuring the heat of a chemical reaction or the physical changes as well as the heat capacity. Some of the common types of calorimeters include : Differential Scanning Calorimeters (Based on thermo-analytical methods, where the difference in the amount of heat required for increasing the temperature of a sample and reference is measured as a function of temperature. There are two sub-types - heat flux differential scanning calorimeters and modulated temperature differential scanning calorimeters)
