    I have to design an experiment in chemistry that tests the efficiency of a polystyrene coffee cup calorimeter. Please give me some ideas on how i can do this.
    The idea of testing it against other materials eg aluminum or glass is already taken.

    Please someone help me.

    You first.

    Tell us how you would use a styrofoam coffee cup as a simple calorimeter and then we will suggest ways to test for its efficiency.

    When you present your part to us, the calorimeter experiment, you must give us full details. Best of all is if you actually try your own technique and report exactly what you've done. Then we can offer advice on efficiency.
