Basic Principles and Calculations in Chemical Engineering, Eighth Edition goes far beyond traditional introductory chemical engineering topics, presenting applications that reflect the full scope of contemporary chemical, petroleum and environmental engineering. Celebrating its fiftieth Anniversary as the fields leading practical introduction, it has been extensively updated and reorganized to cover todays principles and calculations more efficiently and to present far more coverage of bioengineering, nanoengineering and green engineering.

Offering a strong foundation of skills and knowledge for successful study and practice, it guides students through formulating and solving material and energy balance problems, as well as describing gases, liquids and vapors. Throughout, the authors introduce efficient, consistent, student-friendly methods for solving problems, analyzing data and gaining a conceptual, application-based understanding of modern chemical engineering processes. This editions improvements include many new problems, examples and homework assignments.
