Introductory Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics Elliott

The second edition is now available. This site will no longer be updated.

Introductory Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics is a textbook designed primarily for undergraduate chemical engineering students. The text provides coverage of molecular concepts, energy and entropy balances, equations of state for thermodynamic property calculations, and activity models. Programs are provided for HP and TI calculators, spreadsheets, and FORTRAN compilers (All PC platform). Computer programs are utilized in example problems. Practice problems are provided at the end of almost every chapter with the answers. Some of the pages on this website utilize the free to preserve formatting and graphics.

Please note that the text is under development for a 2nd edition. Some major changes include: 1) more applications of energy balances; 2) covering energy balances for reactive systems before process thermodynamics; 3) improved coverage of Raoult's law and Modified Raoult's Law to permit more accessible instruction on applications; 4) VLE by EOS now covered after modified Raoult's law; 5) Incorporation of MATLAB; 6)Biological and electrolyte topics including osmotic pressure and tranformed Gibbs energies, and redox reactions.

FAQ

What is internal combustion engines.

Internal Combustion, the fundamentals, are the powerplant in your car. The term Internal Combustion is from the fuel/air mixture combusting , actually exploding is more accurate in the "cylinder" which when the fuel/air is ignited by the spark plug (we are discussing gasoline engines here) . The piston is in the cylinder. While running, the piston is forced up with both valves closed and ignited, and the explosion drives the piston down, to a crankshaft, that creates torque on the crankshaft, and therefore a spinning motion converted from a vertical motion of the piston. I have always b…

how does the 1st and 2nd laws of thermodynamics apply to an internal combustion engine? | Yahoo Answers

the 1st and 2nd law are used for the calculation of the fuel of the engine and by them you know the state and fuel properties (press.,temp.,vol.) for each strock of the engine
from press. we can find and knw the engine power cause this press. is what push the piston ond provite the power
the temp. is important because it is needed to be known to know the amount of cooling needed and allso because is is one of the knock causes
the volume needed when detirmining the volumatric eff. (which effect several things in the engine)
