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. Exams
