About SI for this Course

Welcome to ChE 210 Supplemental Instruction!

Material and Energy Balances (MEB), or ChE 210, is perhaps the most important class in ChE program -- understanding of the material presented in this course is crucial to your further academic and professional success. The course on MEB is truly a foundation for all other ChE courses!
This class is also tough, as it is your first "real" ChE course, and thus, ChE 210 SI sessions are a great and beneficial resource for you to master MEB.
I will be offering three 50-minute sessions per week where together with your peers, you will have an opportunity to work in groups and individually to develop a better comprehension of the material covered in lectures. These sessions will be a perfect place for you to work on various problems and prepare for exams. I will also do my best to make the learning fun, since the course is extremely technical.

Let me know if you have any questions!


Exam 1 Review

Hi everyone, Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow (Wednesday, 10/4) we will have a review session, 6 - 9pm at Howe 1252. I have uploaded the review material. I would appreciate it if you could print it out and bring it to the session Sincerely, Victoria

Week of 9/25

Hi all, Today we are going to have a regular session in Carver 174. I previously said that I would have a two-hour session today; however, I could not reserve a room. Good news: I scheduled Sweeney 1126 for Wednesday, 09/27, 5:10 -- 7pm. In terms of content, today I will be going over the extent of reaction theory, as I was told there were some issues with general understanding of this concept. So, come to the session today if you have questions regarding the extent of reaction method. On Wednesday, we will have 2 hours of practice on reactive systems. Sincerely, Victoria

Session Wed, September 13

Hi all, Today, we will do another cool multi-unit process problem. It's going to be about how decaf coffee is made in industry :) I have uploaded the problem for you to look at. Thank you, Victoria

Week of 9/11

Hi all, This week, we will continue working with multi-unit processes (Monday), and starting this Wednesday, we will introduce reactions into our analysis. Have a productive week, Victoria

Week of 9/4

Hi everyone, I hope you have had a great 3-day weekend! This week, we will start looking at more complex, multi-unit material balances. So, if you are having a difficulty solving multi-unit balances, come to the sessions on Wednesday and Friday -- hopefully, they will help you with the HW. Also, I have uploaded a worked example of a mixing problem very similar to one we solved on Friday. Thank you!
