52:103 Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics January 17 - May 7, 2007 Instructor: David Rethwisch; 4139 SC; 335-1413; email: [email protected] Office Hours: 9:30-10:30 am Tuesday 2:30-3:30 pm Wednesday or by appointment. TA: Matt Scholten; 302 IATL; 335-3374; email: [email protected] Textbook: Elliott, J.R. and Lira, C.T., Introductory Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, Prentice Hall, New York, 1999. Course Description: Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics reviews the principles of thermodynamics and concentrates on applying them to various unit operations and chemical processes. The chief objective of this course is to further develop the foundation of thermodynamics and to apply this knowledge to the solution of problems of interest to the chemical engineer. We will begin the course by reviewing heat and energy concepts followed by introducing concepts such as entropy and equations of state. Once this foundation of material is firmly understood we will consider the application of these concepts to real world problems. This includes prediction of the thermodynamic properties of materials and methods for calculating equilibrium compositions of two-phase or reacting systems, including chemical and biochemical reacting systems, and how these are affected by changes in temperature and pressure. This course will draw heavily from the prerequisite courses 52:041 Process Calculations & 59:009 Engr Fund III: Thermodynamics. Exam Schedule: Midterm exams (open book) 7:00 pm Tuesday, February 20 7:00 pm Tuesday, April 3 Final Exam (open book) 7:30 am Monday, May 7 Grading: The distribution of points for grading is indicated below. Grading will be on a curve with an approximate B average. 2 midterm exams 500 Final Exam 300 Project + Homework 200 TOTAL 1000 Homework: Homework is due at the beginning of class on the day it is due. Late homework will not be accepted. Unannounced quizzes may be given periodically.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
