Simulation of a drop calorimeter for determining heat capacity (Cp) or enthalpy increment (heat content). Menu of seven metal samples in two sizes (three metals sealed in glass ampoules for heat of fusion studies) are heated in an oven which is settable in 10 ? increments between 100 and 1000 ?C. The calorimeter is a metal block operating near room temperature. The page contains operating instructions, background discussion, and suggested experiments at beginning and advanced levels. An "unknown" sample is included. Contact the author for the key.
