Problem Solving In Chemical And Biochemical Engineering


Written for students and professionals, this book provides extensive problem-solving instruction in the fields of chemical and biochemical engineering. The book uses an equation-oriented approach that enables computer-based problem solving on personal computers. Problem solutions are clearly developed using fundamental principles to create mathematical models. Topics covered include basic principles and calculations, regression and correlation of data, as well as process dynamics and control.
