Abstract : The patent describes a rectangular calorimeter with a copper body except for an upper surface of constantan foil. To the calorimeter's base is attached a thermocouple and a differential thermocouple wire, and to the upper surface is attached a copper center tap wire. A series of these calorimeters is achieved by attaching each center tap wire to the base of an adjacent calorimeter.
