This unit will introduce students to topics in material and energy balances through a systematic treatment of: multiple unit operations, recycle, reactions, equations of state, liquid-vapour phase equilibrium, liquid-liquid equilibrium, latent and sensible heat, heat of reactions, and computer aided simulation. The HYSIS process simulation software will be used to aid in the solution of more complex system.


The student is expected to learn procedures to solve complex material and energy balances.
