Calorimetry is the measurement of the amount of heat gained or lost during some particular physical or chemical change. Heats of fusion or vaporization, heats of solution, and heats of reaction are examples of the kinds of determination that can be made in calorimetry. The term itself derives the Latin word for heat, caloric, as is the name of the instrument used to make these determinations, the calorimeter.
