A modified adiabatic bomb calorimeter for specific heat capacity measurements



A modified adiabatic bomb calorimeter for specific heat capacity measurements



International Agrophysics 5(1-2): 53-66



Modifications to the adiabatic bomb calorimeter to enable its use for specific heat capacity measurements by the principle of mixtures are described. Calibration results using pure zinc pellets gave a reproducibility of +or-4.8% while the max. percentage error was 5.38%. The equipment was then used to measure the specific heat capacity of shelled and unshelled melon, maize, rice and yam seeds, in the 7-60% w.b. moisture range and 40-68 degrees C temp. range.
