Chemical engineering is the expansion of processes, design and operation of flora and fauna in which materials undergo alterations in their physical or chemical state. Applied all over the process industries, it is established on the ideologies of chemistry, physics, and mathematics. The laws of physical chemistry and physics administrate the feasibility and productivity of chemical engineering operations. Mathematics is an elementary tool in optimization and modeling. Optimization means assembling materials, facilities, and energy to yield as productive and economical an operation as possible. Modeling is the structure of theoretical mathematical prototypes of complex process systems, generally with the aid of computers.
