This class was tough.
I would recommend this course if you are looking to get a degree in Chemical Engineering. I enjoyed taking this course and I feel it really prepared me for the next level of course that the Chemical Engineering department requires.
This course has a lot to offer. I learn a lot about mass and energy balances around reactive and non-reactive systems, I learned about ideal gases and calculating the vapor pressure of water at certain conditions, I learned about calculating mass and molar fractions when the system is either in equilibrium, when the system is reacting, or when it is non-reactive, and we talked a lot about combustion reactions. For reactive systems, we learned about several different ways of doing mass balances which included a molecular balance, an atomic balance, and the idea of extent of reaction.

Advice for students:
I would say study hard, pay attention in lecture, always find new problems to do outside of the problem sets, go to office hours, and work with the other students in the class.
