BEE 2220 - Bioengineering Thermodynamics and Kinetics


     
Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: MATH 1920 , PHYS 2213 , and chemistry course completed or concurrent.

J. B. Hunter.

Living systems rely on chemical and phase equilibria, precise coordination of biochemical pathways, and the release of chemical energy as heat, all of which are governed by the laws of thermodynamics and the rates of chemical reactions. The course covers concepts and laws of thermodynamics as applied to phase transformations, work, heat, and chemical reactions; and reaction kinetics applied to industrial processes and living systems, all with a focus on biological examples.

Outcome 1: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.

Outcome 2: An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
