About this page


Purpose:

To provide an additional tool for beginning chemical engineering students. There are no numerics covered in this page (yet). It was developed by consulting Dr. Paul Blowers Chee 201 class notes (2000) and the course text, Felder and Rousseau, ELEMENTARY PRINCIPLES OF CHEMICAL PROCESSES, John Wiley & Sons, 3rd ed.

The pages have been initially written by me, Jimmy McCloskey, an undergraduate student at the University of Arizona. My degrees will be in Chemical Engineering and Chemistry, class of 2003. My goal in creating this web site link is to offer students what I always look for in taking a course, an additional resource to the course material that both facilitates the learning process and increases understanding of the material.

Each page covers a distinct concept that is covered in the Chee 201 course. I have chosen problems that exercise the each concept covered for most of the pages. While I have personally only worked a couple of the example problems, several interactive example problems are available for each page through research guided by Dr. Paul Blowers.

I personally offer this advice to new students. To have success in studying chemical engineering, for me, meant two things. Time and problem solving. I had to find the time, at least a few hours a day on average just for studying. And I used the bulk of that time scribbling, working problems. If no ground could be made up on the homework problems, I would copy over problems done in class or other problems already worked to help me understand the problem solving algorithms. So my advice is, spend the time, and reserve the majority of it for problem solving.

Good luck in the pursuit of your studies in chemical engineering.
