To teach students fundamental knowledge of chemical engineering and application of this knowledge in the solving of material and energy balances of chemical processes.
The course will cover concepts ranging from basics such as units and dimensions, stiochiometry to the simultaneous application of material and energy balances with and without occurrence of chemical reaction.
Behaviour of ideal gases including the procedures for estimation of vapour pressure and heats of vaporization will be extensively covered.
Further humidity and saturation along with the use of humidity chart and steam tables will be covered in the course.
Phase and Chemical reaction equilibrium will be introduced.
As supplementary material degree of freedom analysis and the use of spreadsheet software (EXCEL) for process calculations will also be taught.
Mathematical and Engineering Calculations, Units and Dimensions, Material Balance.
Solving Material Balance problems with and without Chemical Reaction.
Recycle, Bypass and Purge Calculations, Combustion, Ideal Gas Behaviour, Vapour Pressure, Cox Chart, Duhring Plot, Humidity and Saturation.
Energy Balances: Heat of Reaction, Heat of Combination, Heat of Formation, Heat of Vaporization, Enthalpy Changes, basics and phase and chemical reaction equilibrium, degree of freedom analysis, and use of spreadsheet software.
