Foundations of Chemical Engineering: Energy Balances

CHE59700

Credit Hours:

1

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.

Description:

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.

Topics Covered:

  • Energy balances without reaction
  • Energy balances with recycle streams
  • Energy balances with reaction
  • Energy flow rates in multi-unit systems
  • Transient energy balances
  • Design of chemical processes using steady-state and transient energy balances

    Homework:

    There will be two homework sets of multiple-choice problems throughout the two-week course. Students should anticipate spending four hours per week per assignment on homework assignments beyond engaging with the lecture and homework tutorial videos. Additionally, students should anticipate spending an additional five to ten minutes engaging in practice problems that are embedded in each lecture.

    Exams:

    There will be a fully online mid-term and final exam that will be open for 60 hrs from Friday at 12:00pm EST - Sunday at 11:59pm EST. Students will have one hour to complete the multiple-choice exam
