I just wanted to be certain about the type of system that calorimeters are? So, all calorimeters act as isolated systems because they have to be thermally insulated, right? I was confused because calorimeters measure the transfer of energy as heat, so couldn't it be a closed system? Thank you!
Today in class (the 3 pm lecture), Dr. Lavelle mentioned that even though there is no such thing as a perfectly isolated system (other than the universe), bomb calorimeters can be considered to be isolated systems.
