CHEN 3320: ChE Thermodynamics Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering John L. Falconer ———————————————————————————————————————— Learning Objectives: Chapter 6 (Elliott-Lira) By the end of this chapter, you should be able to: 1. Calculate properties (U, S, H, A, G, V, f) of real fluids using the Peng-Robinson (PR) equation of state (EOS) spreadsheet, which also uses heat capacity data. 2. Explain why the PR cubic EOS has three roots and what the physical meaning of each root is. 3. Interpret the EOS spreadsheet results to determine which state (root) is most stable. 4. Describe what corresponding states means. 5. Apply the concepts of ideal gases to gas mixtures to predict behavior.

Unformatted text preview: 6. Apply the concept of vapor pressure to predict behavior of single-component, two-phase systems when process parameters change. 7. Sketch and interpret processes on P-V-T diagrams and their projections. 8. Apply the Lever rule to calculate amounts of liquid and vapor in a 2-phase, single component system. 9. Sketch how partial pressures change due to changes in temperature or pressure. 10. Calculate reduced temperature, reduced pressure, and compressibility factor. 11. Explain which terms are repulsive and which are attractive in a cubic EOS. 12. Explain what a radial distribution function is. 13. Explain what is unique about the critical point, both physically and mathematically....
