CHEN.2020 Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics (Formerly 10.202)

Id: 030312 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


The course introduces fundamental thermodynamic principles presented from a chemical engineering perspective. The first and second law of thermodynamics, PV relationships for real and ideal fluids and methods for calculating enthalpy and entropy data, ad heat and work requirements for industrial chemical processes will be determined using mass, energy and entropy balances. Fundamental thermodynamic principles are used to examine applications involving processes with and without chemical reaction, common heat engines, flow processes and refrigeration cycles.


CHEN.2010 Principles of Chemical Engineering with a grade of C- or better,or Spring 2020 grade of "P", and for Chemical Engineering Majors only.
