Conceptests

Conceptests challenge students with qualitative questions that are not answered by memorization. Studies show that conceptests and peer instruction can dramatically improve functional understanding. Furthermore, instructors can gauge students understanding immediately and tailor their instruction accordingly. Sign up to access our inventory.

Screencasts

Screencasts are short screen captures of material with narration by an instructor. Students view these videos outside of class. They present detailed problem solutions, explanations of concepts, mini-lectures, software tutorials, exam reviews, and provide learners with alternatives to lecture notes and textbooks. These can also help to teach students a systematic approach to solving engineering problems. Some recently posted screencasts are to the right.

Adding One Component to a Binary VLE Mixture (Interactive Simulation)

Describes how to use an interactive simulation in which one component is added to an ideal binary mixture that is in VLE and the system is allowed to go to equilibrium at constant temperature and pressure. The simulation is located at: http://demonstrations.wolfram.com/AddingOneComponentToABinaryVaporLiquidEquilibriumVLEMixture/ Made by faculty at the University of Colorado Boulder, Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering.

Adiabatic Flash of Binary Liquid (POLYMATH Solution)

Presents the POLYMATH solution to the nonlinear algebraic equations that model adiabatic flash of an ideal binary mixture. The program calculates the outlet temperature and compositions and the amounts of liquid and vapor. The solution that is used in the POLYMATH program was developed in a separate screencast (https://youtu.be/Aw4VsloWVjM). Made by faculty at the University of Colorado Boulder, Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering.

Flash Calculation: Raoult's Law

Determine the outlet compositions and the fraction of liquid and vapor when a high pressure liquid is flashed to lower pressure. The outlet temperature and pressure are given and the vapor-liquid equilibrium is modeled by Raoult's law. Made by faculty at the University of Colorado Boulder, Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering.

Molecular Weight of a Protein from Osmotic Pressure

Uses osmotic pressure of a protein solution to determine the protein molecular weight. Made by faculty at the University of Colorado Boulder Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering.
