A Century of Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics Education: Concepts in a Thermodynamics Chemical Engineering Course

Education Division
AIChE Annual Meeting
November 17, 2008 - 1:30pm-2:00pm
Good problems require good wrong answers that show the misconceptions many students have about the material. Examples will be presented to demonstrate the lack of understanding of some of the important concepts in chemical engineering thermodynamics, such as vapor pressure, phase equilibrium, phase changes, reversible and irreversible processes, entropy, fugacity, state functions, chemical equilibrium, ideal gases, energy balances, and cycles.
