Word forms: (regular plural) energy balances
( Chemical Engineering : General )
In establishing an energy balance, all sources of thermal energy are put on the input side, and all items of heat utilization
on the output side.
When determining an energy balance, you need to know what energy is being transferred in and out of the system.
An energy balance is a consideration of the energy input, output, and consumption or generation in
a process or stage.
