Calorimeters

Postby Jesse Anderson-Ramirez 3I » Sun Feb 02, 2020 3:53 pm

Does the type of calorimeter affect the problem at all? Or do the equations work the same regardless of the type of calorimeter?

if it's a bomb calorimeter then it is an isolated system

Bomb calorimeters are isolated systems (constant volume) and constant pressure calorimeters are open systems (constant pressure.

If a bomb calorimeter is used then it is an isolated system

It only matters if it is a bomb calorimeters instead of a regular calorimeter.

Bomb calorimeters are isolated systems.

it will affect the problem if it's a bomb calorimeter, because then it's an isolated system

Yes, it does matter if its a bomb calorimeter versus a regular calorimeter. A bomb calorimeter is an isolated system so you would have to solve accordingly. All other calorimeters are regular, and it doesn't matter otherwise.

how many types are there?
