Chemical engineering

This best-selling engineering statistics text provides a practical approach that is more oriented to engineering and the chemical and physical sciences than many similar texts. It is packed with unique problem sets that reflect realistic situations engineers will encounter in their working lives. This text shows how statistics, the science of data is just as important for engineers as the mechanical, electrical, and materials sciences.

Key Features

Coverage of probability is lively and interesting. It is complete but concise so as not to take over the content of the entire text.
Treatment of all topics is oriented towards real engineering applications. In the probability chapters, the authors do not emphasise counting methods or artificial applications such as gambling.
An unusually thorough amount of coverage of regression modeling, design of engineering experiments, and statistical process control makes the text useful as a reference for many important topics
