Engineering Chemistry [RTU]

Engineering Chemistry is a semester 2 subject in the first year of engineering at Mumbai University. Objectives for the subject  Engineering Chemistry to provide the necessary background in applied chemistry relevant to chemical industries.

To provide exposure in conducting experiments and interpret and report the results in a professional format. Outcomes for the subject Applied Chemistry– II Learner will be able to Identify types of corrosion and factors affecting it related to problems affecting all industries. Identify different types of corrosion control methods to study corrosion control in various industries. Apply the knowledge of different types of fuels, including their production and refining methods and combustion mechanisms. Illustrate the composition and properties of different types of alloys and the process of powder metallurgy. Illustrate principles of green chemistry. Illustrate properties and applications of different types of composite materials.

Corrosion is a natural process that converts a refined metal into a more chemically stable form such as oxide, hydroxide, or sulfide. It is the gradual destruction of materials (usually a metal) by chemical and/or electrochemical reaction with their environment. Corrosion engineering is the field dedicated to controlling and preventing corrosion. In the most common use of the word, this means electrochemical oxidation of metal in reaction with an oxidant such as oxygen or sulfates. Rusting, the formation of iron oxides is a well-known example of electrochemical corrosion. This type of damage typically produces oxide(s) or salt(s) of the original metal and results in distinctive orange coloration. Corrosion can also occur in materials other than metals, such as ceramics or polymers, although in this context, the term “degradation” is more common. Corrosion degrades the useful properties of materials and structures including strength, appearance, and permeability to liquids and gases. A fuel is any material that can be made to react with other substances so that it releases energy as heat energy or to be used for work. The concept was originally applied solely to those materials capable of releasing chemical energy but has since also been applied to other sources of heat energy such as nuclear energy (via nuclear fission and nuclear fusion). Module Fuels consist of the following subtopics Definition, classification of fuels-solid, liquid and gaseous. Calorific value- Definition, Gross or Higher calorific value & Net or lower calorific value, units of heat (no conversions), Dulong’s formula & numerical for calculations of Gross and Net calorific values.
