    Judith Claire Mitchell: IMG The Book That Refused to Write Itself



    I first heard of Fritz Haber in 1998, when I caught a snippet of a TV documentary about 20th-century scientists. The camera zoomed in on an image of... Continue »

Diffusion: Mass Transfer in Fluid Systems

Diffusion: Mass Transfer in Fluid Systems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This textbook provides a clear and complete description of diffusion in fluids, the spontaneous mixing of different states that is fundamental in chemical engineering, chemistry and biology. Earlier textbooks on diffusion have given the subject a reputation for being difficult and have appealed most to students with a background in engineering and mathematics. Dr Cussler's informal style will appeal to all students. He includes numerous simple examples and some numerical exercises that emphasize and apply basic concepts in great detail. The book assumes no prior knowledge of other phenomena and will be a valuable introduction for students of chemistry and biology as well as engineering.

Synopsis:

A clear and complete description of diffusion in fluids, for undergraduate students in chemical engineering.

Synopsis:

Diffusion is central to a diverse range of phenomena, from transport in living cells to dispersal of pollutants. This text clearly describes diffusion in fluids. A new edition, it retains the features that won praise for the first - informal style, emphasis on physical insight and basic concepts, and lots of simple examples. The new edition adds coverage of unit operations - with chapters on absorption, distillation, extraction, adsorption, membranes, and drug release - and more worked examples and homework problems.

Synopsis:

This second edition of a highly acclaimed text provides a clear and complete description of diffusion in fluids. It retains the features that won praise for the first edition--informal style, emphasis on physical insight and basic concepts, and lots of simple examples. The new edition offers increased coverage of unit operations, with chapters on absorption, distillation, extraction, and adsorption. New chapters on membranes and drug release broaden the book's scope. The entire text is extensively illustrated, and many new worked examples and homework problems have been added.
