I know about the bomb calorimeter, which measures the heat of a reaction via combustion (burning an object). Is there another kind we learned about?
We also learned about simple coffee calorimeters in which we could measure the heat transfer by using a thermometer.
A coffee cup calorimeter involves using a styrofoam cup so it could be referred to as a styrofoam cup calorimeter but I don't think Dr. Lavelle has ever called it this.
So what is the system and surroundings in a calorimeter with constant pressure and a bomb calorimeter?
I believe that the system would be whatever's inside the calorimeter and the surroundings would be the calorimeter itself since the calorimeter is absorbing the heat.
