Entry from British & World English dictionary
Definition of bomb calorimeter in English:
A thick-walled steel container used to determine the energy contained in a substance by measuring the heat generated during its combustion.
- Energy content was determined with a Parr bomb calorimeter; lipid content was determined through ethyl ether extraction using a Goldfisch apparatus.
- Gross energy of feed and fecal samples was determined using a adiabatic bomb calorimeter.
- As the reaction occurs, the heat released from the combustion would increase the temperature of the water and the bomb calorimeter itself.
