Phase and reaction equilibria are the two most challenging subjects encountered by students during their undergraduate education. Definition of abstract quantities with the help of other abstract concepts is not easy for the students to understand. They are at a total loss in dealing with practical problems related to the chemical and petroleum industries. Fundamentals of Phase and Reaction Equilibria not only provides a sound foundation for understanding abstract concepts, such as Gibbs energy, fugacity, and activity, but also shows how to apply these concepts to solve practical problems with numerous clear examples. Information about the essential numerical methods required for solving problems is provided. It can be used as a reference text or for self-study.
