Energy Transfer - Calorimeter - ET-8499

ET8499_inuse_MAIN.jpg

Overview

The Energy Transfer – Calorimeter includes two nested aluminum cups with an air space between for insulation. While most calorimeters use a coil to heat the water, PASCO's design features a 10 Ω heating resistor mounted to a circuit board. Using temperature, voltage and current sensors, students can investigate the relationship between the input energy and heat transfer into the water.
