This chapter, as well as Chapters 11, “Transport Phenomena: Heat Transfer,” and 12, “Transport Phenomena: Mass Transfer,” will deal with the subject of transport phenomena, the movements of materials, momentum and energy. The subject is perhaps the most mathematically rigorous of all the courses in chemical engineering. Although not a “unit ...
