Systems Question

Postby Paul Sedaros 1B » Sun Jan 15, 2017 1:55 pm

We learned on Friday about the different systems (open, closed, isolated). Are all the isolated systems insulated such as the bomb calorimeter and the constant pressure calorimeter?

Yes, I would assume they would have to be insulated in order to make sure that energy does not exchange with the surroundings. If it was not insulated, it may simply be referred to as a closed system.
