You are expected to have the ability to:
Know the first and second law of thermodynamics and the
concepts of internal energy, work, entropy, enthalpy, and
Write mass and energy balances of non-reactive systems
Solve quadratic and cubic equations
Know how to differentiate and integrate functions
Use computer software for linear and nonlinear algebraic
equations, and linear and nonlinear regression.
By the end
of the course, you should be able to apply phase and
reaction equilibrium concepts to chemical engineering problems,
Solve phase equilibrium problems.
