Explain the construction of a calorimeter. Draw the necessary figure.


A device used for heat measurement is called a calorimeter.

Construction of a Calorimeter

  • It consists of a metallic vessel and stirrers. They are made of copper or aluminium.

  • The vessel is then kept inside a wooden jacket which contains heat-insulating materials.

  • The outer wooden jacket acts as a heat shield, and reduces the heat loss from the inner vessel.

  • The outer jacket has an opening through which a mercury thermometer is inserted into the calorimeter.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
