Revised & Expanded Third Edition!

ADD MAXIMUM PRECISION TO YOUR CHEMICAL ENGINEERING PROBLEM SOLVING!

If solving chemical engineering problems quickly and accurately is key to your work, here's an invaluable info-packed resource: McGraw-Hill's Handbook of Chemical Engineering Calculations.

Fully revised and expanded, this Third Edition delivers step-by-step procedures for performing a wide array of chemical engineering calculations -- along with fully worked-out examples that help you avoid costly errors.

With practical techniques that help you solve problems manually, or by setting up computer-based procedures, this authoritative guide features new sections covering:

* Biotechnology

* Water pollution control

* Chemical process plant cost engineering

And revised and updated sections on:

* Physical and chemical properties

* Stoichiometry

* Chemical equilibrium

* Reaction kinetics and reactor design

* Flow of fluids and solids

* Heat transfer

* Distillation

* Crystallization

* Absorption and stripping

* Filtration

* Liquid agitation

* Size reduction

* Air pollution control

* And much, much more!

An indispensable tool for chemical engineers, this handbook will minimize your effort — and maximize your output!
