Direct CalorimetryDetermination of Energy Content of Foods1.Direct calorimetry is the measurement of how much heat is produced by an object enclosed within a small chamber which is surrounded by a bigger chamber. In this case, the smaller chamber contained food and the outer chamber contained water. The inner chamber was ignited and lost heat to the water in the outer chamber. The increase of the temperature of the water was the subject being measured. 2.The energy content per gram of the food in the experiment was higher than expected. It
