Overall easy to moderately difficult, question 9 might be a bit challenging ! Assignment 1: momentum, heat and mass transfer at the molecular level, due on Tuesday Feb 2nd, end of lecture. Relatively easy in general. Assignment 2: momentum, heat and mass shell balances, due on Tuesday Feb 16th, end of lecture. General application of what we learnt over lectures 4, 5 and 6. Assignment 3: momentum, heat and mass transfer with one or more variables, due on Thursday Mar 17th, end of lecture. Problems of variable level of difficulty, covering lectures 7 to 12. Assignments (optional, but good practice for final exam !) Assignment 4: momentum, heat and mass transfer coefficients. Lectures 14, 15 and 16. Assignment 5: macroscopic momentum and heat transfer. Lectures 17 and 18. Solutions to assignments: Exams: Examples of mid-term exams from previous years. Please note that these exams lasted 2.5hours while ours will last 1hour and 30min only. Examples of final exams: Example1 and Example2 from previous years. Please note that these exams lasted 3hours while ours will last 2hours only.
