Herausforderungen im Labor: Grenzprobleme - Labor
The calorimeter is used for the measurement of thermal energy and the French physicists Lavoisier and Laplace created this type of model. It is made of a series of containers nested in one another. The innermost container holds the test sample and the outermost is filled with crushed ice. The melted water is caught in the drain and its volume provides a measure for the amount of warmth released by the sample.
