Analysis of heat pumps and engines, and use of combined energy/entropy balance in flow devices. Calculation and application of total and partial properties in physical and chemical equilibria. Prediction and correlation of physical/chemical properties of various states and aggregates. Elements of statistical thermodynamics. Prerequisite: ChE 230 Introduction to Material and Energy Balances

Course Outcomes: Upon completion of this course, you should be able to: apply the laws of thermodynamics to chemical engineering processes; calculate differences in thermodynamic properties using equations of state, charts and tables, and computer resources; solve problems dealing with multi-phase chemical systems and reactive systems; explain the molecular basis of thermodynamics; and interpret thermodynamic data for applications in chemical engineering processes, process safety, biological sciences, energy, and environmental sciences.

Professor Scott, GSIs, IAs, and the tutor are also available by appointment. In particular, tutor Brett Giampa is available to provide one-on-one tutoring by appointment. Prescribed Text: Chemical, Biochemical, and Engineering Thermodynamics, 4th ed. (2006), S.I. Sandler, Wiley & Sons.

Additional resources: Introduction to Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, 7th ed. (2005) J.M. Smith, H.C. Van Ness, M.M. Abbott, McGraw-Hill. This alternate text is commonly used as an undergraduate chemical engineering thermodynamics textbook and can be used for additional reading. Fundamentals of Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics (2012), T. Matsoukas, Prentice Hall. An excellent and recent alternate text, written by an alumnus of the UM Chem E graduate program, that closely mirrors the course outline for ChE 330. Schaums Outlines, Thermodynamics with Chemical Applications, 2nd ed., Abbott & Van Ness, 1989. This inexpensive paperback book contains a brief overview of the important concepts in thermodynamics, along with many exercises and solved problems. It is a good reference for those who want to see more illustrations than those provided in the textbook. Course Web Site: CTools The course web site will contain the following items, among others: Homework assignments. The problems in each homework set will be posted on the web one week before the due date. You must access the web site to get the assignment hard copies will not be distributed. Homework solutions (after the submission due date). Exam answers (after the exams have been graded). Graded assignments: Twelve homework question sets will be assigned and assessed during this course. Your lowest score will be excluded from your final assessment. There will be one mid-semester exam, two intra-semester quizzes, and a comprehensive final exam. Homeworks Quizzes Mid-semester exam Final exam Class participation, attendance, and professionalism Total 18% 12% 30% 35% 5% 100%

Homework: Unless otherwise instructed, homework assignments are to be completed individually. They are an important component of this course and your solutions will be assessed. Your solutions to the homework problem sets should be submitted at the start of class on Friday (see Course Outline). Late homework can be turned in by 11 a.m. on Monday after the original due date; however, you are required to 2014-01-08 2!

i) email GSI Yunzi Li (Lavinia, yunzili) by the original deadline about your expected late submission, and ii) turn in your late homework to 3212 DOW by 11 a.m. Monday (hand your work directly to Lavinia, put it on her desk, or slip it under her office door if the room is locked). No homework will be accepted afterwards. Late homework will be assessed a 50% penalty. Your homework solutions should be neat and easy to grade and handle. If the grader is unable read your solutions or follow your logic, it will be marked as being incorrect. Guidelines: 1. On the first page, in the upper right hand corner, write: Your Name Your Discussion Section Number and GSI Name Problem Set and Due Date (format the date using the ISO 8601 convention of YYYY-MMDD, e.g., 1776-07-04 for the 4th of July, 1776) Students you have studied with while working on this assignment 2. Use 8.5 ! 11 inch paper with straight edges (not paper torn from a spiral bound notebook). You are welcome to format your solutions digitally; however, this is not mandatory. 3. Number all pages (e.g., 1/5, 2/5, etc.), put your name on each page, and staple the pages together do not paper clip or fold the corners. 4. Use a ruler (or computer application) when making sketches and drawings. 5. Please be neat and write legibly. If your work is illegible, the graders are instructed to assume that it is incorrect. Re-grading requests: You may request that the grading of a homework assignment, group project, quiz, or exam be re-evaluated. All such requests must be made in writing and submitted to Professor Scott. Submit the assignment, project, quiz, or exam in question and a brief note that explains your concerns about the grading. Re-grading requests must be made within one week from the date that an assignment or exam is returned. No requests for re-grades will be granted after the one week grace period has expired. There is also a one-week limit for notifying your instructor in the event that an assignment has not been returned to you. The grader will email students whose grades are missing from a particular assignment. Engineering Honor Code: All exams, quizzes, homework and project assignments will be administered under the College of Engineering Honor Code. Exams/Quizzes: You must write and sign the Honor Pledge "I have neither given nor received aid on this examination, nor have I concealed any violation of the Honor Code." after taking each exam or quiz. Failure to do so gives your instructor the right to refuse to grade that exam or quiz. Individual assignment (Limited collaboration): Each assignment is to be completed individually, but not necessarily in isolation. You are welcome to form small study groups (e.g., " five students) and to discuss general solution strategies with peers; however, you are expected to attempt every problem on your own before discussing with classmates and you must complete all calculations and write-up, from scratch to final form, on your own. It is acceptable to discuss problem-solving strategies with the usage of books and notes, but you may not allow any classmate to copy your solution. Note that creating an unfair advantage for another student is an Honor Code violation. Verbatim copying of another student's work is forbidden. You are not allowed to possess, look at, use, or in any way derive advantage from the existence of solutions prepared in previous years, whether these solutions were former students work or copies of solutions made available by instructors or the textbook author.



Group assignment (Intra-group collaboration allowed): All group work is to be completed only within your own group. You may receive help from the course instructors and you may consult with members of other groups in the course, but you must complete your group's calculation and project write-up on your own. Assignment submissions that arouse suspicion that these policies were not followed will be reported to the College of Engineering Honor Council and, if guilt is established, penalties may be imposed by the Honor Council and Faculty Committee on Discipline. Such penalties can include, but are not limited to, letter grade deductions or expulsion from the University for repeat offenses. For more information about the honor code, refer to If you have any questions about this course policy, please consult Professor Scott. Grading: We will use a straight percentage grading scale. We guarantee that the grading will be no tougher than the scale shown below. A-/B+ cutoff 85% B-/C+ cutoff 75% C-/D+ cutoff 60% Professor Scott reserves the right to be more generous when assigning letter grades. He also reserves the right to take into account class participation of the students when the final grades are determined. Students with disabilities: Professor Scott is available to discuss appropriate academic accommodations that may be required for student with disabilities. Requests for academic accommodations are to be made during the first three weeks of the semester, except for unusual circumstances, so arrangements can be made. Students are encouraged to register with Office of Students with Disabilities, G-664 Haven Hall, 734 763 3000,, to verify their eligibility for appropriate accommodations.
