Answers to Selected Problems
• In addition to up-to-date material, this book uses what is known about how students learn. The result is a book that students find easy to read and understand.
• Detailed examples that use real data to solve real engineering problems, organized in a common format for ease of understanding.
• This edition features a large number of new problems that use real data to solve real engineering separation and mass transfer problems.
• Extensive coverage and examples of industrially important separation methods, including: flash distillation; continuous column distillation including extractive and azeotropic distillation; batch distillation; absorption; stripping; extraction; membrane separations; adsorption; ion exchange; and chromatography.
• Simulation exercises for process simulators and exercises for spreadsheets presented in chapter appendices so that they do not cause confusion in courses that do not use these techniques.
• New detailed coverage of mass transfer fundamentals and applications in separation processes.
