A modified adiabatic bomb calorimeter for specific heat capacity measurements


International Agrophysics 5(1-2): 53-66
A modified adiabatic bomb calorimeter for specific heat capacity measurements
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.
