  1. 1. CHAPTER 1 Introduction to Engineering Calculations 1 Elementary Principles of Chemical Processes, by Richard M. Felder and Ronald W. Rousseau By Siti Nur Fadhilah Zainudin Email: fadhilah@ucsiuniversity.edu.my
  2. 2. What do you have to learn in this chapter? 2 Introduction to Engineering Calculation Units & Dimensions Conversion of Units Systems of Units Force & Weight Numerical Calc. & Analysis Dimensional Analysis Process Data Representation
  3. 3. Learning Outcome Convert a quantity expressed in one set of units to another. Identify units for mass and weight in SI, CGS and AE systems. Identify the number of significant figures in a given value, state the precision with which the value is known and determine the correct number of significant figures in the result of a series of arithmetic operations. Apply the concepts of dimensional consistency to determine the units of any term in a function. 3
  4. 4. Units and Dimensions A measured or counted quantity has a numerical value and a unit. 4 • Dimensions are: • Properties that can be measured such as length, time, mass, temperature. • Properties that can calculated by multiplying or dividing other dimensions, such as length/time, length3, mass/length3. • Units are used for expressing the dimensions such as feet (ft) or meter (m) for length, hours/seconds (hr/s) for time. • Perform similar to algebraic variables
  5. 5. 5 Engineers and scientists have to be able to communicate not only with words but also by carefully defined numerical descriptions.
  6. 6. The Reality…. On November 10, 1999, the Mars Climate Orbiter crashed into the surface of Mars. One reason cited was a discrepancy over the units used. The navigation software expected data in Newton second; the company who built the orbiter provided data in pound-force seconds. 6
  7. 7. Reality Check... • Are units really important? • Is checking your work and your team’s work really important? 7
  8. 8. Another case…. 8
  9. 9. Conversion of Units • A measured quantity can be expressed in terms of any units having the appropriate dimension. • To convert a quantity expressed in terms of one unit to equivalent in terms of another unit, multiply the given quantity by the conversion factor. • Conversion factor – a ratio of equivalent values of a quantity expressed in different units. • Let say to convert 36 mg to gram 9 36 mg 1 g = 0.036 g 1000 mg 0.001 is a conversion factor
  10. 10. Conversion of Units  To convert a quantity with a unit to its equivalent in term of other units, set up a dimensional equation: a) Write the given quantity and units on left b) Write the units of conversion factors that cancel the old unit and replace them with the desired unit c) Fill the value of the conversion factors d) Carry out the arithmetic value 10

  13. 13. Systems of Units • Components of a system of units: • Base units - units for the dimensions of mass, length, time, temperature, electrical current, and light intensity. • Multiple units – multiples or fractions of base units such as minutes, hours, milisecond. • Derived units - units that are obtained in one or two ways; • By multiplying and dividing base units also referred to as compound units • Example: ft/min (velocity), cm2(area), kg.m/s2 (force) • Two most commonly used system of units: • SI – Systeme Internationale d’ Unites • AE – American Engineering System of Units 13

  18. 18. Force & Weight • Force is proportional to product of mass and acceleration (i.e. F = m x a) • Usually defined using derived units ; 1 Newton (N) = 1 kg m s-2 1 dyne = 1 g cm s-2 1 Ibf = 32.174 Ibm ft s-2 • Weight of an object is force exerted on the object by gravitational attraction of the earth i.e. force of gravity, g. • gc is used to denote the conversion factor from a natural force unit to a derived force unit. 18 Value of g 9.8066 m s-2 980.66 cm s-2 32.174 ft s-2 gc 1 kg m s-2 / 1 N 32.174 lbm ft s-2 / 1 lbf
  19. 19. Force & Weight Given the density of 2 ft3 water is 62.4 lbm/ft3. At the sea level, the gravitational acceleration is 32.174 ft/s2. What is the weight of the water in lbf? 19 2 ft3 62.4 lbm 32.174 ft 1 lbf ft3 s2 32.174 lbm ft s-2 = 124.8 lbf
  20. 20. Numerical Calculation & Estimation Scientific Notation  To represent a very large and very small numbers in process calculations. Scientific Notation is based on powers of the base number 10.  Example: The number 123,000,000,000 in scientific notation is written as The first number 1.23 is called the coefficient. It must be greater than or equal to 1 and less than 10. The second number is called the base . It must always be 10 in scientific notation. The base number 10 is always written in exponent form. In the number 1.23 x 10^11 the number 11 is referred to as the exponent or power of ten. 20
  21. 21. Numerical Calculation & EstimationSignificant Figures Accuracy refers to how closely a measured value agrees with the correct value. Precision refers to how closely individual measurements agree with each other. 21
  22. 22. 22 Rules for Working with Significant Figures:  Leading zeros are never significant. Imbedded zeros are always significant. Trailing zeros are significant only if the decimal point is specified.  Addition or Subtraction: Position of last significant figure relative to decimal should be compared. The one farthest to the left is the position of the last permissible significant number of the sum or difference.  Multiplication or Division: The result should contain the lowest number of significant figures of any of the quantities.

  24. 24. Dimensional Homogeneity & Dimensionless Quantities • Every valid equation must have dimensional homogeneity; that is, all additive terms on both sides of the equation must have the same dimensions. • A dimensionless quantity can be a pure number or a multiplicative combination of variables with no net dimensions. 24 CBAD  All have identical dimensions
  25. 25. Dimensional Homogeneity & Dimensionless Quantities Importance of Dimensionless Quantities • Used in arguments of special functions such as exponential, logarithmic or trigonometric functions. 25
  26. 26. Dimensional Homogeneity & Dimensionless Quantities Dimensional Consistency • Each term in the equation must have the same net dimensions and units as every other term to which it is added, subtracted or equated As an example, A + B = C –DE If A has a dimension of L3 Then, what about B, (A+B), (C-DE), C & DE? 26

Process Data Representation and Analysis Two Point Linear Interpolation If you are given a set of tabulated data, and you are required to get the data of an unknown, y, linear interpolation equation can be used to get the desired data. 27 112 12 1 12 1 12 1 )( yyy xx xx y xx xx yy yy         
