CEE 6530 Water Chemistry for Environmental Engineering

Instructor: C. Spirito

Lecture: MWF 10:10am-11:00am HLS 162

Fall. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: one semester of college chemistry or permission of instructor.

Covers principles of chemistry applicable to the understanding, design, and control of water and wastewater treatment processes and to reactions in receiving waters. Topics include chemical thermodynamics, reaction kinetics, acid-base equilibria, mineral precipitation/dissolution, and electrochemistry. Focuses on the mathematical description of chemical reactions relevant to engineered processes and natural systems, and the numerical or graphical solution of these problems.
