**Approprirate for all introductory courses in chemical engineering.**

Basic Principles and Calculations in Chemical Engineering, Seventh Edition is a complete, practical, and student-friendly introduction to the principles and techniques of contemporary chemical, petroleum, and environmental engineering. Throughout, the authors introduce efficient and consistent methods for analyzing material and energy balance problems, organizing solutions, and calculating answers. The authors thoroughly address the behavior of gases, liquids, and solids: ideal/real gases, single component two-phase systems, gas-liquid systems, and more. This edition presents extensive new coverage, including new chapters on degrees of freedom, process simulation, and unsteady state materials. It brings together more examples and problems treating topics pertaining to the environment, safety, semiconductor processing, nanotechnology, biology and biotechnology. Recast into 29 modular chapters, it offers students and faculty members an exceptionally flexible approach to learning. The CD-ROM includes new Polymath software, a convenient physical property database, 200 supplementary problems, animations of working process equipment, and checklists designed to simplify learning and accelerate mastery.

The classic introduction to the principles and calculation techniques used in chemical engineering - now in its 7th edition!

° Complete revision including brand new problems (35%), reorganization of Chapters, and additional pedagogy.

° The CD ROM contains over 100 additional examples with detailed solutions, and 100 additional problems with answers.
