Specific heat capacities at constant volume (cv) of water, methanol, and their mixtures were measured with a new adiabatic calorimeter. Temperatures ranged to 20 Mpa. Densities were determined at the initial and final end points during each calorimetric experiment. The calorimeter is a twin-cell type whose sample and reference cells (33 cm3) and their shields are heated by electric power. The cells are surrounded by a high vacuum. During the experiment, the heating power was carefully controlled so that the cell temperature increased uniformly. The reference cell was always evacuated and was heated with a constant current. The temperatures of the sample cell tracked that of the reference cell temperature by means an automatic control system. Automated sample pressure measurements were made with a crystal quartz transducer. The expanded relative uncertainty for cv is estimated to be 1% for liquid-phase measurements, and for density it is about 0.2%.
