What is the difference between constant P calorimetry and constant V calorimetry? How do they work? When would we use them?

Constant P calorimetry refers to keeping a constant pressure while constant V calorimetry refers to keeping a constant volume. For example, a container with gas inside with a movable piston vs. with a fixed piston would be one example of the different types of calorimetry.
