Course : ChE 110A, Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics (Required) Instructor : Professor Bradley F. Chmelka Catalog Course Description : Credits: 3 Prerequisites: Mathematics 5A. Engineering majors only. Use of the laws of thermodynamics to analyze processes encountered in engineering practice, including cycles and flows. Equations-of-state for describing properties of fluids and mixtures. Applications, including engines, turbines, refrigeration and power plant cycles, phase equilibria, and chemical-reaction equilibria. Texts, References, & Software : “Introduction to Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics,” 7 th Edition, J. M. Smith, H. C. Van Ness, and M. M. Abbott, McGraw-Hill (2004). CHE 110A COURSE OBJECTIVES : 1. To understand and be able to use the first law of thermodynamics for open and closed systems, to set up energy balances for steady- and unsteady-state processes and to solve them for simple and classic cases. 2. To understand and be able to use the second law of thermodynamics, to set up entropy balances for steady- and unsteady-state processes and to solve them for simple and limiting cases to establish bounds for solutions to engineering problems. 3. To evaluate thermodynamic properties of pure substances with special emphasis on fluids. Be able to use various PVT equations-of-state and heat capacities to evaluate thermodynamic properties ( U , H , P , V , T , etc.) 4. To be able to calculate heat transfer rates associated with processes involving phase changes and reactions. To be able to calculate standard heats of reaction. 5. To understand the interrelationships between different thermodynamic properties and become familiar with the calculus that establishes these interrelationships. 6. To be able to use various sources of thermodynamic data and properties, including graphs and tables. To use graphs of thermodynamic properties to develop an intuition for the variation of these properties during various processes.
