1 ChE 320: Phase & Chemical Equilibria Welcome! The aim of this course is that you will be able to solve standard problems in Phase & Chemical Equlibria, and to apply the idealized solutions to a broad variety of real problems. Equilibrium Thermodynamics theory is a broad and mathematical subject. We will focus on the important, well-studied, idealized problems listed in the Topics section of this syllabus. By the end of the course, you will be able to … solve the most essential ChE thermo “standard problems” . Vapor-liquid equilibrium, liquid- liquid equilibrium, chemical reaction equilibrium, changes to all of these with temperature or pressure, dissolution of gas in liquids. thermodynamics v kinetics . You will be able to distinguish thermodynamic problems (infinite time) from reaction kinetics or transport problems. You will know when to approximate time- dependent problems with thermodynamics, and you will be able to estimate reaction equilibria from thermodynamic data. thermodynamic models . You will be able to choose a correct thermodynamic model (ideal or nonideal) to approximate equilibrium in gases, VLE (vapor-liquid equilibrium) and LLE. molecular origins . You will understand how molecular contributions impact equilibrium. This greatly enhances your intuition into complicated problems. apply techniques from the standard problems to processes and devices . You will examine flash operations, plus everyday applications of equilibrium thermodynamics. As with most courses, you are mostly responsible for choosing your grade.
