A Textbook of Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A Textbook of Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics free pdf Designed as an undergraduate-level textbook in chemical engineering, this student-friendly, thoroughly class-room tested book, now in its second edition, continues to provide an in-depth analysis of chemical engineering thermodynamics. The book gives comprehensive coverage of basic concepts and applications of the laws of thermodynamics in the initial chapters, while the later chapters focus at length on important areas of study falling under the realm of chemical thermodynamics. The reader is thus introduced to a thorough analysis of the fundamental laws of thermodynamics as well as their applications to practical situations. This is followed by a detailed discussion on relationships among thermodynamic properties and an exhaustive treatment on the thermodynamic properties of solutions. The role of phase equilibrium thermodynamics in design, analysis, and operation of chemical separation methods is also deftly dealt with. Finally, the chemical reaction equilibria are skillfully explained.

Besides numerous illustrations, the book contains over 200 worked examples, over 400 exercise problems (all with answers) and several objective-type questions, which enable students to gain an in-depth understanding of the concepts and theory discussed.

The book will also be a useful text for students pursuing courses in chemical engineering-related branches such as polymer engineering, petroleum engineering, and safety and environmental engineering.

New to This Edition

  • More Example Problems and Exercise Questions in each chapter
  • Updated section on Vapour-Liquid Equilibrium in Chapter 8 to highlight the significance of equations of state approach
  • GATE Questions up to 2012 with answers
