"Over the past decade the field of chemical engineering has broadened significantly, encompassing a wide range of subjects. However, the basic underlying principles have remained the same. To help readers keep pace, this volume continues to offer a comprehensive introduction to the principles and techniques used in the field of chemical, petroleum, and environmental engineering." "As in previous editions, author David M. Himmelblau strives to help readers learn to develop systematic problem-solving skills, understand what material balance are, comprehend energy balances, and cope with the complexity of big problems. In addition, readers are exposed to background information on units and measurements of physical properties, basic laws about the behavior of gas, liquids, and solids, and basic mathematical tools."--Jacket.
