******Recently Published!****** Unit Operations of Chemical Engineering, 7th edition continues its lengthy, successful tradition of being one of McGraw-Hill's oldest texts in the Chemical Engineering Series. Since 1956, this text has been the most comprehensive of the introductory, undergraduate, chemical engineering titles available. Separate chapters are devoted to each of the principle unit operations, grouped into four sections: fluid mechanics, heat transfer, mass transfer and equilibrium stages, and operations involving particulate solids.

Now in its seventh edition, the text still contains its balanced treatment of theory and engineering practice, with many practical, illustrative examples included. Almost 30% of the problems have been revised or are new, some of which cover modern topics such as food processing and biotechnology. Other unique topics of this text include diafiltration, adsorption and membrane operations.

A standard 1-in. Schedule 40 steel pipe carries saturated steam at 250oF. The pipe is insulated with a 2-in. layer of 85 percent magnesia pipe covering, and outside this magnesia there is a -in. layer of cork. The inside temperature of the pipe wall is 249oF, and the outside temperature of the cork is 90oF. Thermal conductivities, in Btu/fthoF, are: for steel, 26; for magnesia, 0.034; for cork, 0.03. Calculate (a) the heat loss from 100 ft of pipe in Btu per hour; (b) the temperatures at the boundaries between metal and magnesia and between magnesia and cork.
