I was just wondering if there are any significant differences in the two calorimeters and whether or not calculations with them involve different equations.
I believe that in a coffee cup calorimeter, the pressure is constant whereas in a bomb calorimeter, the volume is constant
The bomb calorimeter has constant volume while the coffee cup calorimeter has constant pressure. Since the coffee cup calorimeter has constant pressure, it gives us enthalpy values.
