Foundations of Chemical Engineering: Energy Balances
Learning Objective:This is a two week course starting July 8 and ending July 21, 2019.
- Integrate the first law of thermodynamics with the concept of energy balances in unit operations with and without chemical reactions and with and without recycle streams.
- Apply the laws of conservation of mass and energy and thermodynamic equilibrium data in order to formulate solutions for mass and energy flow rates in multi-unit systems.
- Design multiunit chemical processes using steady-state and transient mass and energy balances in order to create multi-unit operations similar to those in future courses and applications in industry.
Students will engage with energy balances with and without chemical reaction and with and without recycle streams. Students will also quantify energy flow rates in multi-unit systems and will design chemical processes using steady-state and transient energy balances.
