Undergraduate Laboratory Experiment Facilitating Active Learning of Concepts in Transport Phenomena: Experiment with a Subliming Solid
Utgikar, Vivek P.
Chemical Engineering Education, v49 n4 p215-220 Fall 2015
An experiment based on the sublimation of a solid was introduced in the undergraduate Transport Phenomena course. The experiment required the students to devise their own apparatus and measurement techniques. The theoretical basis, assignment of the experiment, experimental results, and student/instructor observations are described in this paper. Student response indicated that this simple experiment was of immense value in enhancing student comprehension of the complex concepts of transport phenomena. The creativity and independence required of the students facilitated their involvement in the learning process. This experiment and the future modifications described in this paper will be of value to both the students and the instructors of Transport Phenomena.
