Chapter 4 Entropy and the Second Law
Chapter 5 Calculation of Properties
Chapter 6 Balances in Open Systems
Chapter 7 VLE of Pure Fluid
Chapter 8 Phase Behavior of Mixtures

Chapter 13 Miscibility, Solubility, and Other Phase Equilibria
Chapter 14 Reactions
My goal with this book is to provide the undergraduate student in chemical engineering with the solid background to perform thermodynamic calculations with confidence, and the course instructor with a resource to help students achieve this goal. The intended audience is sophomore/junior students in chemical engineering. The book is divided into two parts. Part I covers the laws of thermodynamics, with applications to pure fluids; Part II extends thermodynamics to mixtures, with emphasis on phase and chemical equilibrium. The selection of topics was guided by the realities of the undergraduate curriculum, which gives us about 15 weeks per semester to develop the material and meet the learning objectives. Given that thermodynamics requires some minimum “sink-in” time, the deliberate choice was made to prioritize topics and cover them at a comfortable pace. Each part consists of seven chapters, corresponding to an average of about two weeks (six lectures) per chapter. Under such restrictions certain topics had to be left out and for others their coverage had to be limited. Highest priority is given to material that feeds directly to other key courses of the curriculum: separations, reactions, and capstone design.
