Bomb Calorimeters

Postby Abby Ellstrom 1I » Sun Jan 21, 2018 10:12 pm

Can all combustion or burning reactions be treated as if they are in a bomb calorimeter?

All combustion reactions can be treated as if they are in a bomb calorimeter as long as all the heat and matter are accounted for.

Questions should specify but most combustion reactions where heat is calculated should occur in a bomb calorimeter.
