Calorimetry is the process of measuring the amount of heat released or absorbed during a chemical reaction. By knowing the change in heat, it can be determined whether or not a reaction is exothermic (releases heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat). Calorimetry also plays a large part of everyday life, controlling the metabolic rates in humans and consequently maintaining such functions like body temperature.
