I am originally from Elk Grove, CA, a town just south of Sacramento. After two semesters at BYU, I spent two years on an LDS mission in Japan. Upon return to BYU, I worked in Dr. Fletcher's lab researching coal gasification. I also worked for the Forest Service modeling forest fires around telecommunication structures. Eventually, I earned a BS in Chemical Engineering with a minor in Mathematics in April 2013. My research interests include thermodynamics and energy engineering. I enjoy woodworking and playing piano, organ, and guitar. When I have time, I enjoy disc golfing and playing ultimate. My favorite way to spend time is hanging out and taking care of my wife and daughters. Currently, I work with Dr. Wilding and I research thermodynamics and thermophysical properties.
Vapor pressure, heat of vaporization, liquid heat capacity, and ideal gas heat capacity are properties commonly used in process design and control. They can be both experimentally measured and calculated from each other through thermodynamic relations, such as the Clapeyron equation. Using both primary experimental data and thermodynamic equations, the most effective temperature-dependent correlation form can be determined for each compound. These compounds, and subsequent curve shapes, have given insight into the influence of functional groups on these thermodynamic properties.
