The #1 Guide to Chemical Engineering Principles, Techniques, Calculations, and Applications--Revised, Streamlined, and Modernized with New Examples
Basic Principles and Calculations in Chemical Engineering, Ninth Edition, has been thoroughly revised, streamlined, and updated to reflect sweeping changes in the chemical engineering field. This introductory guide addresses the full scope of contemporary chemical, petroleum, and environmental engineering applications and contains extensive new coverage and examples related to biotech, nanotech, green/environmental engineering, and process safety, with many new MATLAB and Python problems throughout.
Authors David M. Himmelblau and James B. Riggs offer a strong foundation of skills and knowledge for successful study and practice, guiding students through formulating and solving material and energy balance problems, as well as describing gases, liquids, and vapors. Throughout, they introduce efficient, consistent, learner-friendly ways to solve problems, analyze data, and gain a conceptual, application-based understanding of modern processes.
This edition condenses coverage from previous editions to serve today's students and faculty more efficiently. In two entirely new chapters, the authors provide a comprehensive introduction to dynamic material and energy balances, as well as psychrometric charts.
Modular chapters designed to support introductory courses of any length
Introductions to unit conversions, basis selection, and process measurements
Strategies for solving diverse material and energy balance problems, including material balances with chemical reaction and for multi-unit processes, and energy balances with reaction
Clear introductions to key concepts ranging from stoichiometry to enthalpy
Coverage of ideal/real gases, multi-phase equilibria, unsteady-state material, humidity (psychrometric) charts, and more
Self-assessment questions to help readers identify areas they don't fully understand
Thought, discussion, and homework problems in every chapter
New biotech, bioengineering, nanotechnology, green/environmental engineering, and process safety coverage
Relevant new MATLAB and Python homework problems and projects
Extensive tables, charts, and glossaries in each chapter
Reference appendices presenting atomic weights and numbers, Pitzer Z^0/Z^1 factors, heats of formation and combustion, and more
Easier than ever to use, this book is the definitive practical introduction for students, license candidates, practicing engineers, and scientists.
