Introduction to Chemical Engineering Analysis Using Mathematica

Henry C. Foley, 2002, Academic Press, 509 pp., hardcover, includes CD-ROM

This book provides an introduction to chemical engineering analysis--the processes and designs used to manufacture, use, and dispose of chemical products. Core concepts ranging from the conservation of mass to chemical kinetics are covered. At the same time, the text shows how to use Mathematica--from the basics of writing a few lines of code through developing entire analysis programs. Analysis and computation are explained simultaneously, enabling the student to examine a system, determine the key characterizing variables, write down an appropriate statement for the conservation of mass, and then solve the problem using Mathematica.
