Notes: - Grade is based on test average and homework test average (90%) + homework (10%). All work should be shown on tests and homework. Most tests are closed book. If handouts are needed for test, they will be specified. Makeup test only with legitimate excuse. Test scores maybe curved. - Class attendance is mandatory. Unexcused absence will hurt grade (2x is free, 3x = -5, 4x = -10, etc.). - Academic dishonesty will be handled according to Lamar University Student Handbook. * computer programs for these problems DISABILITIES: Individuals who have any disability, either permanent or temporary, which might affect their ability to perform in this class are encouraged to inform the instructor timely. Adaptation of methods, materials, or testing may be made as required to provide for equitable participation .

ASSESSMENT: 1. Homework 2. Tests OBJECTIVES AND MEASURED OUTCOMES: Numbers in brackets indicate assessment method. Letters in parentheses are ABET attributes . 1. Perform calculations for volumetric properties of fluids including PVT relationships for gases and equations of state for liquids. Emphasize use of volume in real world applications such as design of storage vessels, reactors, and other process equipment. [1,2] (a,e,j,k,l) 2. Perform calculations for heat effects including heating gas, heating liquid, heating solid, heat of vaporization, heat of reaction, and other heat transfer operations. 3. Perform calculations for thermodynamic properties of fluids including corrections for high pressure and involving enthalpy of real gas, entropy of real gas, residual enthalpy, and residual entropy. [1,2] (a,e,j,k,l) 4. Perform calculations for vapor-liquid equilibrium (VLE) including fugacity, Raoults law, K-values, bubble point, dew point, and flash operations. Emphasize importance of such calculations in distillation and other mass transfer operations. [1,2] (a,e,j,k,l) 5. Perform calculations for solution thermodynamics including activity coefficient models, bubble point temperature, and bubble point pressure. [1,2] (a,e,j,k,l) 6. Perform calculations for topics in phase equilibrium including data analysis, activity coefficient at infinite dilution, and thermodynamic consistency. [1,2] (a,e,j,k,l) 7. Perform calculations for chemical reaction equilibria including change of Gibbs energy for reaction, thermodynamic favorability for reaction, and equilibrium yields for reactions. [1,2] (a,e,j,k,l) 8. Perform calculations for adsorption including adsorption capacity of activated carbon, usage in air-clean-up, and usage in water purification. Emphasize use of adsorption in environmental applications having very, very low concentrations.
