The Chemical Engineering behind How Carbonated Beverages Go Flat: A Hands-On Experiment for Freshmen Students
Hohn, Keith L.
Chemical Engineering Education, v41 n1 p14-18 Win 2007
A hands-on project was developed to educate new chemical engineering students about the types of problems chemical engineers solve and to improve student enthusiasm for studying chemical engineering. In this project, students studied the phenomenon of carbonated beverages going flat. The project was implemented in 2003 and 2004 at Kansas State University. Student surveys indicated that students valued the hands-on nature of the activity and enjoyed working in groups on a significant "real world" engineering project. (Contains 1 table.)
