Chemistry: Material Balancing

SKU: AOCM00CENDuration: 120 Minutes

This course is designed to familiarize participants with basic concepts associated with using balanced chemical equations to calculate the amounts of reactants and products in process reactions. After completing this course, participants should be able to explain what material balancing is, verify that a chemical equation is balanced, and use a balanced equation to calculate the amounts of reactants and products in a reaction when the weight of one reactant is given. They should also be able to identify two basic factors that can limit the production of a process system, perform material balancing for a process system when reactant supply is the limiting factor, and perform material balancing for a system in which a specific amount of product is to be produced.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain the meaning of material balancing.
  • Verify that a chemical equation is balanced.
  • Define "molecular weight" and explain how to calculate the weight of a molecule.
  • Calculate the amounts of reactants and products in a reaction when given the weight of one reactant.
  • Identify two basic factors that can limit the production of a process system.
  • Convert reactant supplies expressed as total amounts into supply rates.
  • Determine the limiting factor of a process system that is being operated to produce as much product as possible.
  • Perform material balancing for a process system when reactant supply is the limiting factor.
  • Perform material balancing for a system in which a specific amount of product is to be produced.
