. What is Calorimetry


Best Answer

Calorimetry is a science of mapping changes in state variables of a body for the reason of deriving heat transfer, related to the changes in is state due to physical changes, chemical reactions, and other undefined constraints. It is performed using a calorimeter.

Indirect Calorimeter determines heat that is produced by living creatures by measuring the production of nitrogen waste and carbon dioxide or from the amount of oxygen consumed. Direct Calorimeter can also be used to determine heat that is produced by living organisms.
