Bomb calorimeter is normally used for determining the higher calorific value of solid fuels. However, it is also used for liquid fuels.The combustion of the fuel takes place at constant volume in a totally enclosed vessel.Thus higher calorific value at constant volume is determined. If the combustion leads to reduction in volume of the products of combust ion when reduced to initial temperature, the values obtained are different from actual heat liberated. One of the recenttypes of bomb calorimeter are shown in photo.
