Calorimetry Calculator
What is Calorimetry?
Calorimetry is the science of measuring the heat of chemical reactions or physical changes. It helps us understand how much energy is involved in heating or cooling a substance.
How to Use the Calculator
To use the Calorimetry calculator is simple:
 Enter the initial temperature (°C).
 Enter the final temperature (°C).
 Enter the mass of the substance (g).
 Enter the specific heat capacity (J/g°C).
 Click on the “Calculate” button.
Example Input Values:
 Initial Temperature: 20°C
 Final Temperature: 80°C
 Mass: 150 g
 Specific Heat Capacity: 4.18 J/g°C
How to Calculate Calorimetry
Formula:
$\text{Energy} = m \times c \times \Delta T$
Variables:
Variable  Description 

$m$

Mass of the substance (g) 
$c$

Specific heat capacity (J/g°C) 
$\Delta T$

Change in temperature (final – initial) (°C) 
StepbyStep Calculation Guide:
First Step:
Measure the initial temperature ($T_i$).
Second Step:
Measure the final temperature ($T_f$).
Third Step:
Calculate the temperature change ($\Delta T = T_f – T_i$).
Fourth Step:
Measure the mass ($m$).
Fifth Step:
Use the specific heat capacity ($c$).
Final Step:
Plug the values into the formula $\text{Energy} = m \times c \times \Delta T$
Example Calculation:
If the initial temperature is 20°C, the final temperature is 80°C, the mass is 150 g, and the specific heat capacity is 4.18 J/g°C:
First Step: $T_i = 20$
Second Step: $T_f = 80$
Third Step: $\Delta T = 80 – 20 = 60$
Fourth Step: $m = 150$
Fifth Step: $c = 4.18$
Final Step: $\text{Energy} = 150 \times 4.18 \times 60 = 37620$
Calculation Examples
1. Basic Example:
Input  Value 

Initial Temperature (°C)  25 
Final Temperature (°C)  75 
Mass (g)  100 
Specific Heat (J/g°C)  4.18 
Calculation:
$75 – 25 = 50$
$100 \times 4.18 \times 50 = 20900$
Heat Energy: 20900 J
2. Advanced Example:
Input  Value 

Initial Temperature (°C)  10 
Final Temperature (°C)  90 
Mass (g)  200 
Specific Heat (J/g°C)  4.18 
Calculation:
$90 – 10 = 80$
$200 \times 4.18 \times 80 = 66880$
Heat Energy: 66880 J
FAQs
Q1: What if my specific heat capacity is not in J/g°C?
Convert it to J/g°C with a conversion tool.
Q2: Can I use this calculator for any substance?
Yes, as long as you know the specific heat capacity.
Q3: What if my initial temperature is higher than my final temperature?
The principle is the same, but the energy value will represent cooling.
