EGR 235 - Material and Energy Balances

Course Description

Effective: 2012-01-01

Covers fundamental chemical engineering topics including engineering problem solving, stoichiometric and composition relationships, material balances, energy balances, chemical operations and processes, reactive and non-reactive systems (batch, continuous, single-phase and multi-phase). Introduces thermodynamics and physical chemistry.
Lecture 3 hours, Total 3 hours per week.
3 credits

General Course Purpose

This course provides a foundation to Chemical Engineering study by introducing the two imporlant laws of natural science: the conservation law of mass and the conservation law of energy (first law of thern-rodynamics). This course prepares the students to apply the mathematics and chemistry knowledge that they have learned previously to Chemical Engineering calculation with examples drawn from realistic industrial systems and operation processes. More importantly, this class focuses on realistic engineering design, analysis and problem solving skills aiming to well prepare the students for their future careers.
