Chapter 9 9/1/09 How do we measure these thermodynamic quantitities? Calorimeter : an insulated device that can be used to determine the heat change associated with a chemical or physical process 1) Constant pressure calorimeter 2) Constant volume calorimeter For both types reaction of interest is carried out, and the temperature of the calorimeter is measured Note: Because the conditions are different, the value of T measured for these 2 types of calorimeters are different Coffee cup calorimeter constant pressure calorimeter Inner cup contains the reaction being investigated Outer cup provides extra insulation Both cups are used to prevent heat transfer to the surroundings Constant pressure calorimeter reactants are added quickly and the temperature of the solution is monitored Specific heat
