Goals 1. To make students learn basics and applications of material and energy balances in engineering.
2. To provide students with the ability to analyze, represent and state engineering problems by using flowsheets and degree of freedom analysis.
3. To make students able to write and solve material and energy balances for simple chemical processes
4. To provide students information on unit operations of process engineering.
5. To make students able to use perfect and real gas equations in solving material and energy balance equations in single phase systems.
6. To let students able to solve multiphase problems using Gibbs phase rule, Henry’s and Raoult’s laws.
7. To provide students with the ability to write and solve material and energy balances on non-reactive, reactive, closed and open systems.
8. To provide student with the ability to obtain thermodynamic data from charts, diagrams and tables.
Content FE 201 Material and Energy Balances course covers the fundamentals of material and energy balances in unit operations in the chemical engineering. It will provide students with the ability to analyze, represent and solve material and energy balances in single and multi-unit chemical processes, in single and multi-phase systems, closed and open, non-reactive and reactive systems. Students will learn and use equation of states for perfect and real gases, Kay’s Rule, The Gibbs Phase rule, Henry’s and Raoult’s laws in solving material and energy balance equations. They will also have the ability to obtain thermodynamic data from physical property charts, figures and tables in order to solve material and energy balances equations.
