Editorial Reviews

A textbook for an introductory stoichiometry course within a chemical engineering curriculum, preparing students to formulate and solve material and energy balances on chemical process systems and laying the foundation for subsequent courses in thermodynamics, unit operations, kinetics, and process dynamics. Felder (North Carolina State U.) and Rousseau (Georgia Institute of Technology) also introduce the engineering approach to solving process-related problems. The third edition is revised from the 1986 second to reflect the wider fields chemical engineers are now entering<-->such as environmental engineering, biotechnology, and microelectronics<-->and changes in the types of software used.

    One of the Best

    I'm a chem engineer 7 years out of school. I still use this book one way or another about once every two weeks. I can't say the same thing about any of the other textbooks I used in school. If there is one title from your coursework you should keep, this is it.
