In an experiment, you heat up an iron rod on a bunsen burner and then transfer the rod to a calorimeter filled with water. Throughout the course of the experiment, all types of measurements are made and the object is to calculate the heat lost, gained, and change. Can another liquid be used in the calorimeter instead of water? Why or why not?
