This course covers the formulation and solution of material, energy, and entropy balances, with an emphasis on open systems. A systematic problem-solving approach is developed for chemical process-related systems. Extensive use is made of classical thermodynamic relationships and constitutive equations. Applications include the analysis and design of engines, refrigerators, heat pumps, compressors, and turbines.
