In this course students will learn sufficient thermodynamics and problem solution strategies to be able to apply thermodynamic concepts with material and energy balances to chemical process problems involving several unit operations and involving chemical reactions. This will include study of the first and second law of thermodynamics, vapour liquid equilibria for pure components, heats of phase change, heats of reaction and example applications such as refrigeration and power plants. This course is part of the chemical engineering design stream and thus culminates in a significant design exercise.
