Web page (Blackboard) http://learn.vt.edu My solutions for all assigned homework problems will be posted on Blackboard the day after you turn in an assignment. Numerical answers will be posted (as an announcement) before you do the homework. Tests and quizzes and their solutions from Fall, 2007 and Spring, 2008 will also be available. I will frequently use Blackboard for announcements. Help sessions : On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00-5:00 and Fridays from 3:00-4:00 (in Hancock 209), I will have Help Sessions. I will be happy to answer questions regarding material we have covered in class and to assist with homework. Attendance at these sessions is entirely optional; you can get there anytime during the session and leave whenever you like. We will not cover new material during these sessions. Text : Elementary Principles of Chemical Processes, by Richard M. Felder and Ronald W. Rousseau, 3rd Edition, John Wiley & Sons, Inc., New York, 2000. For many years, this text has been the “standard” for the introductory course in chemical engineering. It contains far more material than can be covered in a one-semester course. We will cover the first nine chapters. As with all engineering texts, this one is not “easy” reading, but the material is developed logically and completely and, in every chapter, there are outstanding example problems and “Test Yourself” exercises which illustrate the important types of calculations. All assigned homework problems are taken from the large selection given at the end of each chapter in the text.

    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.
