This pdf illustrates how to use the programming language Python to solve the problems posed in the book Introduction to Chemical Engineering Computing, Bruce A. Finlayson, Wiley (2006-2014). The material mirrors the use of MATLAB in the book, and solves the examples in Chapters 2, 3, 4, and 8. In addition, a new Appendix F gives summaries of many Python commands and examples. Together with the book, chemical engineering applications are illustrated using Microsoft Excel®, MATLAB®, Aspen Plus®, Comsol Multiphysics®, and Python. This pdf is intended to be used in conjunction with the book, and the treatment using Python mirrors that using MATLAB. Appendix F includes information for setting up Python on your computer.
