Enthalpy is the overall energy content of substances in a reaction, it is represented by ∆H. In order to compare reactions and calculate energy changes accurately ∆H is calculated using theoretical standard conditions.
Calorimetry measures enthalpy changes from combustion using the equipment shown. It can also be used to measure other reactions using a beaker with a cork stopper and thermometer.
