The first kind that was gone over in lecture (two styrofoam cups) was a constant pressure calorimeter. The bomb calorimeter is one in which the volume is kept constant. It's called a bomb calorimeter because they are more prone to explosions as the pressure changes, but not the volume, leading to high pressure in a small area.
