The seventh edition of Unit Operations of Chemical Engineering contains new material throughout the textbook and many additional problems. However, the basic structure, general level of treatment and overall length are largely unchanged. This is an introductory text written for undergraduates in their junior or senior year who have completed the usual courses in mathematics, chemistry, physics, and an introduction to chemical engineering. An elementary knowledge of the above-mentioned subjects and energy balances is assumed.
