Thermodynamics ConcepTests

Multiple-choice conceptual questions for use in class with student response systems (clickers)

Software

  • Thermodynamics spreadsheets (Michigan State University): Uses Excel and Peng-Robinson equation of state for single components and mixtures.
  • Online homework problems (Michigan State University): 80 randomized problems.
  • Polymath (CACHE): Solves ODEs, linear equations, and nonlinear equations. Screencasts demonstrating Polymath use.
  • Chemical Engineering AppSuite HD (University of Alabama): A phone app that contains thermophysical property data, steam tables, a period table, units converters, and equation of state solvers. Available for $0.99 US.
  • XSEOS: Excel add-in to compute thermodynamic properties using thermodynamic models.
  • Equations of state: MATLAB programs for the calculation of phase equilibrium and other thermodynamic properties using different equations of state (classical cubic equations, cubic equations with excess Gibbs energy mixing rules, group contribution equations and SAFT equations).
