Bomb Calorimetry (constant-volume calorimetry) Since combustion reactions involve dramatic increases in pressure, they are typically studied under conditions of constant volume in a device known as a bomb calorimeter . The bomb calorimeter is essentially a sealed insulated instrument with no pressure regulation. The sealed reaction chamber is surrounded by water, and the energy released, or

Unformatted text preview: absorbed, by the sample is measured indirectly by monitoring the temperature change of the water. Analyses under constant volume allow determination of ∆ E (energy change at constant volume), not ∆ H (energy change at constant pressure)....
