Ch. 2 – Introduction to engineering calculations
(units and dimensions, weight, dimensional homogeneity)
Ch. 3 – Processes and process variables (mass and
volume, flow rate, chemical composition, pressure, temperature)
Ch. 4 – Fundamentals of material balances
(process classification, material balance calculations, multiple-unit
processes)
Week

balances (recycle and bypass, stoichiometry, reactive processes, combustion
Ch. 5 – Single-phase systems (densities, ideal gases,
equations of gas for non-ideal gases, compressibility factor equation of state)
Ch. 6 – Multiphase systems (single component phase
equilibrium, Gibbs phase rule)
Week 3 Ch. 6 – Multiphase systems (gas-liquid systems,
multicomponent systems, solutions of solids in liquids)
Ch. 7 – Energy and energy balances (first law of
thermodynamics, kinetic and potential energy, energy balances on closed
systems)
Week

(energy balances on open systems at steady state, thermodynamic data)
Ch. 8 – Balances on
nonreactive processes (energy balance calculations, changes in pressure at
constant temperature, changes in temperature, phase-change operations)
Week
5 Ch. 9 – Balances
on reactive processes (heats of reaction, Hess’s law, formation reactions and
heats of formation, heats of combustion, energy balances on reactive processes,
fuels and combustion)
