Gain a better understanding of chemical processes. This text will provide you with a realistic, informative introduction to chemical processes. This 3rd edition has been completely revised to provide you with increased clarity, including: Hundreds of new and revised problems and new case studies cover a broader spectrum of chemical engineering applications. Guidance for solving problems that require spread sheeting and equation-solving software. A CD-ROM that provides an active learning environment. With this software, students respond to questions and receive immediate feedback, explore variations in process parameters and see the effect of their changes on process operations, and more. 2005 Edition icons in the text margin let you know when it's most helpful to use the ICPP CD-ROM and the Student Workbook.
