Abstract—Life is an excellent laboratory to understand, comprehend and master the basic sciences. The theoretical principle underlying the daily life phenomena has a potential to assist education. With this point of view, some examples were offered to use in engineering education, especially for chemical engineering departments, to ease the understanding and mastering of the undergraduate students. In order to check this educational approach, a questionnaire was performed among the students taking the lecture with the notion mentioned in this study and students not taking the course. The evaluation of the questionnaire proved that the daily life examples can enhance learning.

Index Terms—Chemistry, education, engineering, engineering education.
