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 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.
