This course will cover basics of momentum transfer required in any processing industries. The basic knowledge of momentum transfer is intermingled with most of the unit operations at some or other stage of processing. Since, this basic aspect of transfer process is not taught in most of the engineering institutions elaborately, a comprehension of the this aspect of transfer process will enrich the knowledge base of the students in general.
