Hours & Credits
OverviewIn this course the student will learn sufficient thermodynamics and problem solution strategies to be able to apply thermodynamic concepts with material and energy balances to chemical process problems involving several unit operations and involving chemical reactions. This will include study of the first and second law of thermodynamics, vapour liquid equilibria for pure components, heats of phase change, heats of reaction and example applications such as refrigeration and power plants. This course is part of the chemical engineering design stream and thus the submission of a satisfactory design portfolio is part of the requirements for successful completion of the course. This course replaces CEIC2110, thermodynamics portions of CHEN2061 and CEIC1020. Textbook: Introduction to Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, J. M. Smith and H. C. Van Ness, 6th Ed. (McGraw Hill).
