Schematic diagram of water-circuit for the heat-absorbers of the calorimeter 2215.
For accurate determination the heat received by the calorimeter must be considered.
The data which we have used were obtained by the use of a calorimeter measuring the quantity of heat passing through covering.
A calorimeter is any piece of apparatus in which heat is measured.
The tables used in connection with calorimeter determinations are illustrated in Fig. 14.
The gas is forced from the bell to the calorimeter by the pressure in the bell.
During this operation the calorimeter must be maintained in the vertical position shown in the diagram.
H is an electric heater for raising the body to a suitable temperature, which can swing into place directly over the calorimeter.
In the dome of the calorimeter, and directly over the head of the subject, is the opening for the weighing apparatus.
As the method is usually practised, the calorimeter is made very small, and the surface is highly polished to diminish radiation.
