Fundamentals of chemical engineering thermodynamics Themis Matsoukas

By: Matsoukas, Themis [autor]Series: Physical and chemical engineering sciencesPublisher: Upper Saddle River, NJ Pearson Education 2013Description: xxiii, 669 páginas ilustraciones, figuras 25 cmContent type: Media type: Carrier type: ISBN: 9780133134353Subject(s): Ingeniería Química | TermodinámicaDDC classification: 660
Partial contents:
Pure fluids. - - Phase diagrams of pure fluids. - - Energy and the first law. - - Entropy and the second law. - - Calculation of properties. - - Balances in open systems. - - VLE of pure fluid. - - Mixtures. - - Phase behavior of mixtures. - - properties of mixtures. - - Theory of vapor-liquid equilibrium. - - Ideal solution. - - Nonideal solutions. - - Reactions.
Abstract: Part I clearly introduces the laws of thermodynamics with applications to pure fluids. Part II extends thermodynamics to mixtures, emphasizing phase and chemical equilibrium. Throughout, Matsoukas focuses on topics that link tightly to other key areas of undergraduate chemical engineering, including separations, reactions, and capstone design. More than 300 end-of-chapter problems range from basic calculations to realistic environmental applications; these can be solved with any leading mathematical software.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Fundamentals of Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics is the clearest and most well-organized introduction to thermodynamics theory and calculations for all chemical engineering undergraduates. This brand-new text makes thermodynamics far easier to teach and learn. Drawing on his award-winning courses at Penn State, Dr. Themis Matsoukas organizes the text for more effective learning, focuses on "why" as well as "how," offers imagery that helps students conceptualize the equations, and illuminates thermodynamics with relevant examples from within and beyond the chemical engineering discipline. Matsoukas presents solved problems in every chapter, ranging from basic calculations to realistic safety and environmental applications.

Include appendix and index. - - Include appendix A. Critical properties of selected compounds. - - B.Ideal-gas heat capacities. - - C. Standard enthalpy and gibbs free energy of reaction. - - D. UNIFAC tables. - - E. Steam tables.

Include bibliography [página 627]

Author notes provided by Syndetics

Themis Matsoukas has taught graduate and undergraduate thermodynamics, materials and energy balances, and various electives at Penn State-home to one of the world's largest undergraduate programs in engineering-since 1991. He has taught thermodynamics more than twenty times, to more than a thousand undergraduate students. His honors at Penn State include the George W. Atherton Award for Excellence in Teaching (2009); the Outstanding Teaching Award, Penn State Engineering Society (2006); and the AXE: Outstanding Teacher Award (2005).
