1 CHE 3173: HETEROGENEOUS EQUILIBRIUM, SPRING 2019 Lectures: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 9:30-10:20 am Room: 1100 Patrick F. Taylor Hall Prerequisites: At least a “C - ” in ChE 3172. Instructor: Kunlun Ding ([email protected]), 3314G Patrick F. Taylor Hall Instructor’s office hours: Fridays 1:00-2:30 pm. Teaching assistants: Amber Pete ([email protected]); Md Saeedur Rahman ([email protected]) TAs’ office hours: Mondays and Wednesdays 1:00-2:30 pm, Rm. 3302 PFT Hall (Amber); Tuesdays and Thursdays 1:00-2:30 pm, Rm. 3302 PFT Hall (Saeedur). Textbook: Milo D. Koretsky (hereafter to be known as Kor.), Engineering and Chemical Thermodynamics 2nd edition, Wiley, 2013. ISBN 0470259612. The older edition of this book (Engineering and Chemical Thermodynamics, Wiley, 2004. ISBN 0-471-38586-7) would also work fine. Supplementary books: materials from other thermo books will be used for handouts and class problems. Some examples are: (1) J. M. Smith, H. C. Van Ness and M. M. Abbott, Introduction to Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, 7th Ed., McGraw-Hill, 2005 (2) J. R. Elliott and Carl T. Lira, Introductory Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, 2nd Ed., Prentice Hall, 2012 (3) S. I. Sandler, Chemical, Biochemical, and Engineering Thermodynamics, 4th Ed., Wiley, 2006 (4) K. D. Dahm and D. P. Visco, Jr., Fundamentals of Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, Cengage Learning, 2014 Moodle: we will rely heavily on Moodle ( ); also accessible through myLSU) to manage this course. Specifically, we will use Moodle to: (1) Post class notes, handouts, class problems, homework solutions, exam solutions etc. All the course materials will be posted on Moodle. (2) Post general news and announcements related to the class Course outline (Chapters 6-9 of the textbook)

2 I. Phase equilibrium I: Problem formulation (Ch. 6) The phase equilibrium problem. Pure species. Thermodynamics of mixtures. Multicomponent phase equilibria. II. Phase equilibrium II: Fugacity (Ch. 7) Fugacity. Fugacity in vapor phase. Fugacity in liquid phase. Fugacity in solid phase. III. Phase equilibrium III: Applications (Ch. 8) Vapor-liquid equilibrium (VLE). Liquid-liquid equilibrium (LLE). Vapor-liquid-liquid equilibrium (VLLE). Solid-liquid equilibrium (SLE) and solid-solid equilibrium (SSE). Colligative properties. IV. Chemical reaction equilibrium (Ch. 9) Chemical reaction and Gibbs energy. Equilibrium for a single reaction. Calculation of the equilibrium constant. Relation between the equilibrium constant and concentration of species. Multiple reactions. Instructional objectives By the end of the course the attendees should be able to perform the following: • Explain the convenience of using the Gibbs free energy to determine phase equilibrium of a pure species. Predict how the pressure of a pure species in phase equilibrium changes with temperature (Clapeyron equation) and how other properties change in relation to one another. Explain the limitations of the Clausius-Clapeyron equation and relate it to the Antoine equation for saturation pressures.

    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.
