I am doing a grade 13 Chemistry experiment on the different levels of energy produced by protein, fats and carbohydrates. I have researched and discovered that it is a bomb calorimeter that is used to measure the energy. I would like to know how to build a simple bomb calorimeter that will allow me to measure the energy of my three substances. I am doing this experiment to discover what gives off the most energy, as a way of understanding the thought behind, high protein or high carbohydrate diets.
Re: How do I measure the energy combustion of protein, fats and carbohydrates?
