Description / Abstract:

The most readable, understandable, and intuitively satisfying book on the thermodynamics of physical and chemical equilibrium Physical and chemical equilibrium and the calculation of the thermodynamic properties of mixtures is a topic of great interestand importanceto engineers, but it is not always easy to master. Using the simplest mathematics possible, and providing extensive discussion of the theory and practice of equilibrium calculations, the Second Edition of Physical and Chemical Equilibrium for Chemical Engineers provides rigorous but readable, understandable, and intuitively satisfying coverage, showing the reader how to solve common and advanced problems by hand, and by using spreadsheets, and then explains how such problems are solved in computer process design programs. Fully revised and expanded, this new edition explores physical and chemical equilibrium in detail, including a new appendix on the Bridgman Table and its uses, a new chapter on Equilibrium in Biochemical Reactions, and new sections on minimum work, eutectics and hydrates, adsorption, buffers, and the charge-balance method of computing them. Its appendix on Calculation of Fugacities from Pressure-Explicit EOSs clearly shows how modern computer equilibrium programs actually do their work using the SRK and related equations. Providing a concise and highly accessible guide to the thermodynamic properties of a wide range of mixtures, and how these properties control physical and chemical equilibrium, this book is of interest not only to chemical, but also environmental and civil engineers. Large numbers of problems and examplesworked in detailhelp the reader integrate the material in this book into his/her working technical toolkit. Physical and Chemical Equilibrium for Chemical Engineers is a must-have for anyone wanting to understand and then apply this important branch of thermodynamics.
