Studying for The Fundamentals of Engineering (Chemical FE)

You know what? I’m feeling good and I want to start 2019 with a bang, so I want to track one of my 2019 goals via my blog, live. That goal is to pass the Chemical FE exam. It is loaded with plenty of subjects I REALLY need to brush off. Over the following 25 days, I will spend 30-60 minutes of practicing various problems over 16 topics. Check out the link above.

My main goal on writing this post is to hold myself accountable on being CONSISTENT. I do currently hold a full-time job as an engineer and I would like to go to they gym 3-5 times a week. With a busy schedule, I’d like to see if I can practice consistently for at least 25 days.

X = 25 minutes

(XX) Day 25 (Wed, Jan 2): Materials and Energy Balances (MEB) Reactor problem with a recycle stream. Key definitions: conversion (single-pass, overall), selectivity, yield and recycle ratios.

(XX) Day 24 (Thur, Jan 3): MEB reaction problem involving extents of reactions.

(X) Day 23 (Fri, Jan 4): Vapor-Liquid and Gas-Liquid Separation. Covered topics such as the McCabe-Thiel assumption, operating line, equilibrium line and the number of stages in a separation column (i.e. Distillation).

(XX) Day 22 (Sat, Jan 5): Conductive and convective heat transfer problems. I think heat-transfer problems are really cool.

(X) Day 21 (Sun, Jan 6): Radiation heat transfer and Heat Exchanger heat transfer problems.

(XX) Day 20 (Mon, Jan 7): Convective Mass Transfer problem and Binary Flash Distillation problem. F = L + V, Fz = Lx + yV.

(X) Day 19 (Tue, Jan 8): Watched videos from
