EP 220/PE 220 – CHEMICAL ENGINEERING THERMODYNAMICS (II)

Course lecturer :

Assoc.Prof.Rania Farouq

Course assistant :

Eng.Samah Hawash

Course objectives :

To enable students to: i) Introduce the properties of the pure substances ii) Present the thermal engineering devices from the heat balance point of view iii) Provide the students with the interactions between heat and work done as both will act as a boundary phenomena affects the total energy of the thermal engineering systems. iv) Familiarize the students with the first and second law of thermodynamics on both closed and open thermal engineering systems. v) Present heat engines , refrigerators as well as heat pumps specifications vi) Introduce the possibility of the heat engine machines to convert the heat added to a useful output power ( the second law of thermodynamics). vii) Familiarize the students with the possibility of the refrigeration machines to pump heat from a low temperature reservoir to the high temperature reservoir. viii) Present ideal cycles. ix) Present the laws of thermodynamics in chemical engineering x) Introduce the chemical reaction equilibrium of the mixtures

Course description :

This course introduces the students to Application of The first and second laws of thermodynamics in Chemical Engineering, actual gas cycles, thermodynamic relation, vapour liquid equilibrium, and Thermodynamics of mixtures chemical reaction equilibrium.
