Material and Energy Balances form the foundation for nearly all future chemical engineering courses and analysis. The process of account for mass and energy is akin to “chemical accounting” and in this course we will learn how to formulate the balances that govern systems in which mass and energy are exchanged. Included in this analysis are both reactive and nonreactive systems. An overview of physical behavior will be included to provide an introduction to energy balances. Overall, this course will provide an introduction to the principles and calculation techniques used in the field of Chemical Engineering as well as provide an exposure of the various areas and facets of current Chemical Engineering research
Principles of chemical engineering form the foundation for nearly all chemical engineering problems and analysis. This course will provide an introduction to the principles and calculation techniques used in the field of Chemical Engineering. This course is designed to:
1. Provide you with the fundamentals of material balances as applied to chemical engineering to enable the analysis of a chemical process
2. Teach you the fundamental concepts of energy balance, conduction, convection, radiation heat transfer. Also One, two, and three dimensional steady and unsteady conduction will be learned.
3. Obtaining a solid understanding of the fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics
3. Physical and mechanical properties of polymers
