Calorimetry - Theory, Practise.

Calorimetry is the direct (by using a calorimeter, a heat-measuring device) or the indirect measurement of the amounts of heat absorbed or given out in physical, chemical or biological systems.

Calorimetry - from the Latin: calor = heat - is a method of thermodynamics and physical chemistry (thermochemistry) for the quantitative determination of thermal and thermal quantities, such as specific heat and heat capacity, latent heat, heat of mixing, reaction heat, heat of combustion, calorific value etc.

Below you will find online information available on calorimetry, calorimetric techniques and practical protocols. Commercially available devices for calorimetric measurement are listed in section calorimeter.
