Basic principles and calculations in chemical engineering 7th. This edition of the book provides introduction and practical to the students of all petroleum, environmental and chemical engineering. It is a student-friendly book which contains all the specific information about the principles, the author highlights on the efficient methods of industry analyzing products. It helps in organizing problem-solving solutions. The behavior of matter as gas-solid and liquid is clearly addressed. This also includes new chapters based on the unsteady state of materials. It consists of more topics that are found to be problem treating.


Basic principles and calculations in chemical engineering 7th edition features.

  • It contains useful methods which help students use the emerging disciplines that are of urgent use.
  • Rearranged into 29 chapters which help to learn and take help in an organized form.
  • CD-Rom is thoroughly updated. Working equipment and checklist designed finely to simplify the learning processes.
  • Introduces a new and latest coverage of limits of freedom, unsteady state materials, helps the student to focus on the new needy techniques in today’s world.
  • A polymath software introduced to solve all linear, nonlinear equations. This helps in providing a strong software to solve all kind of chemical calculation accurately.
