i need someone to explain this to me as im doing a lab next week...
for determining the calorimeter constant using a simple calorimeter how would one calcualte the calorie constant? i knw theres an equation involving the warm water and hot water ect ect but i don't knw how to apply it or understand it please help

The calorimeter constant is usually presented in units of joules per degree Celsius (J/°C) or joules per kelvin (J/K). A calorimeter constant is a constant that quantifies the heat capacity of a calorimeter. It is calculated by applying a known amount of heat to the calorimeter and measuring the calorimeter's corresponding change in temperature.
