Purdue University ChE 205: Chemical Engineering Calculations, Spring 2013 A. Instructor: Professor Stephen P. Beaudoin B. Catalog Description: Quantitative applications of steady-state mass and energy balances to solve problems involving multi-component systems and multi-unit chemical processes. Single-component and multi-component phase equilibria, single-reaction and multiple-reaction stoichiometry, coupled mass and energy balances, chemical processes involving bypass and recycle streams. C. Prerequisites: Chemistry 116 or Chemistry 136; Mathematics 161 (or equivalent); Physics 152 (or equivalent) D. Course Text: Elementary Principles of Chemical Processes (2005 Edition) with Integrated Study and Media Tools by R. M. Felder and R. W. Rousseau. Wiley and Sons, 2005, ISBN: 978-0-471-68757-3. E. Course Learning Objectives. By the conclusion of the semester, class participants should be able to: 1. Work professionally and ethically as a member of a chemical engineering team. 2. Understand the diverse social, economic, and environmental issues associated with being a chemical engineer 3. Understand, apply, and convert between English and metric units in order to design chemical engineering unit operations and multiunit operations. 4. Derive the hydrostatic equation in order to determine the results of the equation in the utilization of manometers in chemical engineering practice. 5. Apply the law of conversation of mass and conservation of atomic species in order to solve mass balances in unit operations with and without chemical reactions and with and without recycle streams. 6. Determine, using first principles and well-established correlations, the relations between thermodynamic equilibria and multiphase systems. 7. Integrate the first law of thermodynamics with the concept of energy balances in unit operations with and without chemical reactions and with and without recycle streams. 8. Apply the laws of conservation of mass and energy and thermodynamic equilibrium data in order to formulate solutions for mass and energy flow rates in multiunit systems. 9. Understand and apply the concepts of transient mass balance problems in order to develop a basis for non – steady state applications. 10. Design multiunit chemical processes using steady-state and transient mass and energy balances in order to create multiunit operations similar to those in future courses and applications in industry. F. Course Outcomes. By the end of the course, the student should be able to (numbers in parentheses refer to ABET program educational objectives listed in Section G): 1. Estimate physical properties of real chemical systems (1). 2. Evaluate introductory single-component and multi-component phase equilibria and incorporate these concepts into solutions of mass and energy balance problems (1, 3). 3. Solve steady state and transient mass and energy balance problems for both reacting and non-reacting systems with or without recycle using analytical and computational methods (1, 3, 5). 4. Work professionally and ethically in teams to solve new mass and energy balance problems (1, 3, 4, 6, 7). 5. Discuss contemporary chemical engineering problems including their societal, environmental, and global impacts (8).
