The present text introduces the use of population balances in the context of batch wet granulation
and coating systems and it reviews the latest achievements and proposals in the scientific
literature in this field. The nature and framework of population balance theory are highlighted and
one-dimensional population balances are introduced from scratch. This may seems tedious at first
but the derivation of even the simplest population balances is nevertheless not an easy task, and it
is in fact difficult to find complete derivations elsewhere in literature.

Chapter 18 Distributions to Shareholders: Dividends and Repurchases

Chapter 16 Capital Structure Decisions: The Basics
a. Capital structure is the manner in which a firm’s assets are financed; that is, the righthand side of the balance sheet. Capital structure is normally expressed as the percentage of each type of capital used by the firm--debt, preferred stock, and common equity.
Chapter 21 Hybrid Financing: Preferred Stock, Warrants, and Convertibles
a. Preferred stock is a hybrid security, having characteristics of both debt and equity. It is similar to equity in that it (1) is called “stock” and is included in the equity section of a firm’s balance sheet, (2) has no maturity date, and (3) has payments which are considered dividends--thus, they are not legally required and are not tax deductible.

time, a massive shift in the balance of economic power is
under way, with many of the world’s largest economies
slowing down as other economies continue to grow and
gain power, bringing prosperity to many and a new world
When analyzing kinetic data or designing a chemical reactor, it is important
to state clearly the definitions of reaction rate, conversion, yield, and selectivity.
For a homogeneous reaction, the reaction rate is defined either as the
amount of product formed or the amount of reactant consumed per unit
volume of the gas or liquid phase per unit time. We generally use moles
(g mol, kg mol, or lb mol) rather than mass to define the rate, since
this simplifies the material balance calculations.

The fifth edition continues to provide a balance between theory and practice.

salesperson or real estate broker, is the use of your time. Your ability to maximize your
time enables you to dramatically increase your income or not. The most effective time
utilizers are the people that understand time strategy and the value of their time; how to
stretch its use and leverage it to meet their goals and objectives. Most agents feel that
their business encroaches on their personal life and their family life, at times, gets the
leftovers after their clients and prospects....
