CHE 222 Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics I South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (3 credits) Spring 2008 C304 Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Bldg. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 8:00-8:50 am Instructor: Prof. Kenneth M. Benjamin C218 Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Bldg. Kenneth.Benjamin@sdsmt.edu 394-2636 Office Hours: Tuesday 2:30-4:30 am Thursday 2:30-4:30 pm By appointment Text: Engineering and Chemical Thermodynamics, First Edition, Elementary Principles of Chemical Processes, Third Edition, Course Website: http://sdmines.sdsmt.edu/sdsmt/directory/courses/2008sp/che222M001 Catalog Description: CHE 222 CHEMICAL ENGINEERING THERMODYNAMICS I (3-0) 3 credits. Prerequisite: CHE 217, concurrent registration in MATH 225. A study of the principles and applications of thermodynamics with emphasis on the first law, the energy balance. Rationale: Thermodynamics is the study of energy, entropy, and equilibrium. In the field of chemical engineering, this has application in writing and solving energy and entropy balances to model chemical and physical processes, and in calculating the properties of materials, such as gases and liquids. The concepts developed in this course (particularly those of energy balances) will carry forward into all upper level chemical engineering courses. Course Objectives: 1. To introduce and understand the basic laws of thermodynamics 2. To understand the relationships between various thermodynamic properties 3. To provide practice at developing critical thinking skills 4. To provide practice at developing creative thinking skills 5. To provide experience in solving open-ended problems in teams Course Outcomes: 1. Calculate changes in thermodynamic properties such as pressure, temperature, volume, energy, entropy, and free energy through equations of state 2. Understand how the first and second laws of thermodynamics dictate the performance of all engineering processes. 3. Solve basic energy balances for closed systems. 4.
