Course Name: Phase equilibrium thermodynamics

Course abstract

This is an introductory course in Thermodynamics and is one of the basic subjects to understand interfacial mass transfer and separation processes like distillation, solvent extraction, etc. The course introduces the concepts of chemical potential and fugacity and emphasizes the principles governing equilibrium for single and multicomponent systems. It discusses ideal as well as non-ideal solutions and deals with the entire range of phase miscibility (completely miscible to totally immiscible). There is a well-balanced coverage of physical concepts, mathematical operations along with examples and exercise problems of practical importance. After completion of the course, the students will be able to apply the basic principles of thermodynamics, the laws, and the pertinent equations to engineering design of mass transfer equipment.
