Bomb Calorimeter

Area Linked to: 
Applied & Analytical Chemistry
Research Area: 
Chemical Analysis

Bomb calorimeter is used to determine the calorific value of fuels. A known amount of the fuels (coal, petroleum products) is burnt inside a stainless steel bomb placed in a water bucket containing known volume of water in presence of excess oxygen. The heat produced by the combustion raise the temperature of the water which is used to calculate the calorific value of the fuel.
