Calorimetry can also be used to determine the temperature of a hot object that is difficult to measured by any other method, e.g. because it is too hot for the thermometers available. The heatcontent of the object can be calculated from the mixture temperature that is reached in the calorimeter. The initial temperature of the object can be calculated from this when the capacity of the object is known.


Heat the metal object over a flame, put it into cold water in the calorimeter and determine the mixture
temperature that is reached. Use this temperature to calculate the initial temperature of the object.
