Calorimeters Isolated

Postby Michelle Dong 1F » Tue Jan 23, 2018 11:06 pm

Are all calorimeters isolated? Or is the only isolated calorimeter the bomb calorimeter?

The bomb calorimeter is isolated because it does not allow exchange of heat or matter, but the coffee cup calorimeter has to be open to have constant pressure.

I thought that coffee cup calorimeters were closed because they allow heat exchange but not matter exchange?
