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.

The values of respiration heat are usually calculated from measured values of CO2 production, assuming that the respiration quotient equals unity. Limitations of this procedure are discussed. An apparatus is described in which the heat of respirat...
