This entry is part 2 of 8 in the series How ChE Prepared Me for Business (and How It Didn’t)

We’ll focus on the latter and how it ties into our fundamental building block for ChE: The Material & Energy Balance.

In particular, in the last blog, we discussed Income Statements at length.

(You’ll recall from an earlier post that the Balance Sheet is a snapshot in time, showing a “material balance” of Assets against Liabilities.) Cash Flow is easy to calculate.
