Felder's Elementary Principles of Chemical Processes prepares students to formulate and solve material and energy balances in chemical process systems and lays the foundation for subsequent courses in chemical engineering. The text provides a realistic, informative, and positive introduction to the practice of chemical engineering.
This classic text has provided generations of aspiring chemical engineers with a solid foundation in the discipline – engineering problem analysis, material balances and energy balances.
Richard Felder is a recognized global leader in the field of engineering education and this text embodies a lifetime of study and practice in effective teaching techniques.
The text is in use at more than 4 out of 5 chemical engineering programs in the US.

The text has been updated throughout, reflecting the broadened scope of chemical engineering practice, to include biomedical, biochemical, biomolecular, environmental, energy, materials, and safety applications.
Approximately 350 new and revised chapter-end problems, many featuring new application areas including 33 on Safety, 42 on Environment, 42 on Bioengineering, 11 on Alternative Energy, and 11 on Materials.
An “Index of Selected Applications in Problems” assists instructors in targeting problem applications for homework or in-class examples.
“Notes With Gaps” – detailed coursepack for Chapters 2-9 with lecture notes containing blanks to fill in and spaces in which to work examples. The intent would be for instructors to provide the “Notes With Gaps” to their students before lecture, so the students could fill in the gaps during class/lecture. This is an excellent tool for new instructors as well as instructors seeking to apply active learning approaches.
APEx – an Excel® add-in that eliminates much of the drudgery of routine calculations that require large expenditures of time and have little instructional value.
