1 Chemical Reaction Engineering - Musgrave Rate of Reaction and Mole Balances Lecture 1 - Page 1 Outline: 1. Introduction a. Motivation for chemical reaction engineering b. Importance of Reactors (Fogler 1.0) c. Structure of this course (Fogler Preface C) 2. Rate of Reaction (Fogler 1.1) 3. General Mole Balance Equation (Fogler 1.2) Next Time: 1. Batch Reactors (Fogler 1.3) 2. Continuous Flow Reactors (Fogler 1.4) 3. Industrial Reactors (Fogler 1.5) Chemical Reaction Engineering - Musgrave Rate of Reaction and Mole Balances Lecture 1 - Page 2 Goal: To develop a fundamental understanding of reaction engineering Motivations: We want to solve reaction engineering problems logically , and avoid memorization and black box solutions. This approach will allow us to use our understanding to: • Solve new problems, • Develop unique solutions for specific situations and conditions, Analyze the various aspects of a reactor design, • Understand when a reactor solution is wrong . Why do we want to solve reaction engineering problems? • What do chemical engineers do? • What makes them valuable? • How can a chemical engineer make the biggest impact on the world? • What defines a successful chemical engineering process?
