calorimeter

an instrument for measuring quantities of heat, e.g. a BOMB CALORIMETER measures the heat output on burning a sample of material. Calorific values used in energetics are now measured in JOULES rather than CALORIES.

calorimeter

an instrument for measuring the amount of heat produced in any system or organism. The material is burned in the calorimeter and the heat energy produced is measured.
