The measurement of the stored energy of graphite taken from the lattice of the ORNL Graphite Reactor is described. The release of 26 cal/g of stored energy was observed upon heating to 218°C. The measurements were made using a new technique that depends upon the transfer of heat by radiation from the walls of the calorimeter to the sample.
