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
