Laws of Thermodynamics Equilibrium and stability Thermodynamic properties of single phase and multiphase, single component and multicomponent systems. Reaction equilibrium Combined phase and reaction equilibrium

Course Objectives

  1. TO to apply various equations of state for
    estimation of vapor and liquid volumes and calculate various thermodynamic properties.
  2. To able to list various courses of non ideality of
    flow in reactors and draw the corresponding E curve. Students should be able to calculate the dispersion coefficient from given E- curve. Students should be able to fit a flow model for a reactor for given E curve.

Course Outcomes

Students should be able to calculate equilibrium compositions in vapor-liquid, and liquid-liquid using various equations and theories ( for application in gas- absorption, distillation extraction etc.) Students should be able to determine the importance of pore diffusion and external mass transfer for a given experimental rate concentration data. Students should be able to calculate the size required for conducting a given catalytic reaction, considering heat effects.
