- Students will be able to identify steps in a chemical process that involve energy change and transfer, and identify the thermodynamic and physical data needed to quantify these transformations.
- Students will be able to obtain necessary thermodynamic data from the literature and use empirical methods to estimate thermodynamic quantities when literature values are not available.
- Students will be able to write mathematical expressions based on physical properties, simple equilibrium relationships, and equations of state to describe relationships among process variables.
- Students will be able to write mathematical expressions to describe process specifications and physical constraints on chemical processes.
- Students will be able to complete the multi-step, multi-component steady-state material and energy balance analysis of chemical process systems, for both reactive and non-reactive systems, with or without phase changes.
- Students will be able to write technical memos which consistently follow format conventions for figures, graphs, and tables.
- Students will be able to write technical memos which are consistently organized to convey key information first, followed by supporting detail.
- Students will be able to write in a concise and direct style, with attention to the needs of the audience.
