Abstract

The objective of calorimetry is the measurement of heat. To measure heat means to exchange heat. The exchanged heat tends to effect a temperature change in a body that can be used as a measure of the heat exchanged, or the process of heat exchange is connected with a heat flow which leads to local temperature differences along its path which again serve as a measure of the flowing heat.
