Keeps The Heat From Flowing.....

a: Calorimeter ~
b: glorified thermos

What: "A device known as a calorimeter can be used to measure the specific heat of a given material. A calorimeter is like a glorified thermos, with great insulation and a thermometer to measure the temperature of the contained fluid. A sample of a given material is raised or lowered to a different temperature from the fluid and then dropped into it. Assuming a negligible amount of heat escapes the walls of the calorimeter, the change in measured temperature can be used to determine the specific heat of the material."
