Course Description:
Development and applications of the combined first and second laws; relations between state
properties; chemical equilibria in reacting and non-reacting systems; irreversible thermodynamics;

Scope & Objective:

The purpose of this course is to provide a comprehensive treatment of thermodynamics from a
chemical engineering viewpoint. The most important problems the chemical engineer must be able to
cope with will be emphasized, viz. heat and work requirements for many physical and chemical
process, determination of equilibrium constants for chemical reactions.
