Description

This is the complete, modern introduction to chemical reaction engineering for today's readers: students who demand instantaneous access to information, have no time to waste, and want to enjoy the learning process while building their skills with both critical thinking and creative problem solving. H. Scott Fogler and M. Nihat Gürmen build on the strengths of their classic Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering, Fourth Edition, enabling students to learn chemical reaction engineering through logic rather than memorization. They also provide extensive new resources to help students gain a deep intuitive understanding of how reactors behave in diverse situations. For example, they provide more than 60 realistic interactive simulations on CD-ROM - just one of many tools, videos, and games designed to support students with many different learning styles. Much of this book's content has been revised based on feedback from 200+ University of Michigan students who classroom-tested this book. Coverage includes: mole balances; conversion and reactor sizing; rate laws; stoichiometry; isothermal reactor design; conversion; molar flow rates; collection and analysis of rate data; multiple reactions; reaction mechanisms, pathways, bioreactions, and bioreactors; catalysis and catalytic reactors; nonisothermal reactor design; steady state energy balance and adiabatic PFR applications; and both steady-state and unsteady-state nonisothermal reactor design.
