Chemical Engineering holds annual Chem-e-Car Competition
Tuesday, July 19, 2022
2 Chems and a Mech is a competitive team that is part of the Interdisciplinary Design of Chemical Systems Course. The car is powered by a reaction between acetic acid and sodium bicarbonate which produces carbon dioxide gas which pushes the piston. The byproducts of the reaction are sodium acetate and water.
This team placed second in the regional competition and will compete in the national competition at the AIChE conference in November 2022
