Fossil Fuels

Parent Category: Energy
Fossil fuels are a non-renewable source of energy. Formed from decomposed animals and plants that existed up to 300 million years ago, fossil fuels are located in the deposits beneath the earth.
According to an internet search, about 30% of the world's crude oilproduction comes from offshore rigs.
Yes, we are running out of Fossil Fuels. In about 30 years, it will be gone. We will have to turn to solar and nuclear energy.
Lignite is the type of coal that is stage 2.
There are many factors involved, such as age, load, type of power,capacity, and environment. For instance, the average cost of just fuel in a typical nuclearpower plant is around $40 million (US) for 18 months. The maintenance of a power plant includes parts, labour and oveheadfor breakdown repairs,...
The Iron lung was essentially a pressure chamber in which thethe pressure could be increased quite a lot over atmosphericpressure as a means of forcing the absorbed coal gas back out. Itsother common use was in treating polio, and also divers with the'bends'. . +++ . Coal-gas is poisonous by being...
1. High energy density - a lot of energy with not much fuel 2. Can be used directly in home 3. Cheap compared to other forms of energy as an extra 4. Relatively easy to transport
The biproducts of fossil fuels are carbon monoxide, sulphites,nitrites, and solid residue which is non biodegradable.

Diamonds are Carbon; that's it. Coal is mostly Carbon with other elements in it.
Coal and oil are fairly cheap and abundant fuels, and deposits ofthese range practically from pole to pole around the globe. Manynations employ extraction technology, and those that don't purchaseoil (in particular) as fuel for transportation. So any place anairplane flies or a car, truck, or train...
Bituminous coal or black coal is a relatively soft coal containing a tarlike substance called bitumen. It is of higher quality than lignite coal but of poorer quality than anthracite. Formation is usually the result of high pressure being exerted on lignite.
Saudi Arabia Proven oil reserves(billion barrels): 267.91 Total oil supply in 2012(thousand barrels per day): 11,545.7 Saudi Arabia has almost one-fifth of the world's proven oilreserves and ranks as the largest producer and exporter of oil inthe world.
Biogas typically refers to a mixture of gases produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen . Biogas can be produced from regionallyavailable raw materials such as recycled waste. It is a renewableenergy source and in many cases exerts a very small carbonfootprint.

Different materials boil at different temperatures (generally andvery roughly speaking, for similar molecules the lighter they arethe lower the temperature at which they boil). By raising thetemperature enough to boil the lighter components of a mixture butnot enough to boil the heavier ones, the...
That's not QUITE what it does, or at least it's not ALL of what itdoes. For similar compounds, in general, lighter molecules boil - thatis, become a gas - at a lower temperature than heavier ones. "Cracking" is the process of splitting large, heavy molecules intosmaller, lighter ones. Because they...
Isomerisation causes straight chain alkanes to become branched alkanes which prevents the chains from moving to close proximities of each other. This reduces the van der Waal's intermolecular forces between chains so less energy is needed to overcome the forces and thus a lower boiling point.
OSHA, NFPA and EPA regulations specify what safety precautions must be taken at power plants. Also various state and local regulations must be considered as well.
fossil fuel is not edible so you cannot use it for cooking. But the heat energy generated on combustion of fossil fuel can be used for cooking. 575tur6 . Gas and coal and oil, in various parts of the world.
It doesn't occur in nature. It occurs as a long chain hydrocarbon,such as crude oil. Crude oil is then split up into differentfractions in a fractioning column (via distillation). One of theshorter chains that has practical uses is petrol. Fractions include: Fuel oil, Diesel, lubricating oil,...
Crude oil is the oil in tankers or pipelines going to refineries. It is a complex mixture of compounds. Now, all plants need to breath. A plant that is covered in oil and that cover is maintained, will likely die. This can happens when a oil storage tank leaks. The environmental damage can be...
Coal is abundant and easy to convert into electricity.
All liquids have viscosity. The viscosity of crude oil is higher than water due to molecular adhesion forces which are forces that attract the various hydrocarbon compounds to each other. Crude oil has a very large range of viscosities. See related link.
Is Carbon or as we know it Biofuel.
a lot of many areas in mexico produce petroleum but the biggestpetroleum (oil) reserve is in the town of Tuxpan on the Gulf coastof Mexico.
Maybe evaporation but I wouldn't use the oil in an engine anyway.
It is used for heating, generating electricity, and as a fuel for cars and trucks.
Coal is abundant and easy to harvest from the earth to produceelectricity relative to nuclear energy. Solar energy is abundantbut difficult to harvest compared to coal.
Crude oil is distilled, producing different fractions at different temperatures.
At first, people burnt small quantities of coal or coke in their fireplaces for warmth. The consumption of fossil fuels is really by means such as burning coal or oil to generate electricity, or using oil products as automotive fuels. This releases carbon dioxide, additional to the natural carbon...
Basketballs do contain petroleum.
Yes it is possible to do that.
Wind turbines don't use up any fuel, so they don't have any exhaust. Since they don't use any fuel, there's no fuel used preparing fuel for them either.
First, it depends on the specific gasoline blend, the amount of ethanol blended into it, and the temperature of the fuel. In general the following values are used for electrical conductivity: Gasoline: 1x10 -14 mho/cm (without any ethanol blended in is ) Ethanol (95% purity): 10 -9 mho/cm ...
No, it is preferable to use outdoor air which is then expelledrather than blowing indoor air out so new cold air replaces it.
Products made from crude oil are called petrochemicals and include hundreds of products. You may also do a seach under petrochemicals and obtain more information. See related link.

Basically, a clarifier is attached just after the purifier in the fuel line. While the main function of a purifier is to separate the dissolved water, impurities and sludge from the fuel oil, a clarifier removes any solid foreign material that is not removed from the oil after it passes through the...
The carbon cycle, because the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) in industry, transport and the generation of electricity, releases carbon dioxide (CO 2 ).
The lake is Lake Maracaibo, actually a brackish bay off the Gulf ofVenezuela.
Yes, it is non-renewable.
yes; aquamarine gems are a non renewable source.

The dead organism's remains or traces must be preserved long enough to be recorded in rock.
Raw oil or unprocessed oil is not very useful in the form it comes in out of the ground. Oil needs to be separated into parts and refined before use in fuels and lubricants, and before some of the byproducts could be used in petrochemical processes to form materials such as plastics, and foams.
President used heavy hand against big buiseness
I have included a number of links. The chief advantage is it is the most economical way of transporting large volumes of oil from the area of production to refineries, which then transport the refined petroleum products to consumers. It is frequently the only practical means of transporting crude...
Some do. Coal is a fossil and it changes chemical energy into heatenergy on burning it in the presence of oxygen.
Mostly it's burned for energy.
the good things are without coal and oil we would not be able to heat our homes
At present, the US government is actively promoting nuclear energy. The states, on the other hand, seem to disagree about it.
The largest deposits are in the North Sea which belong to the UK and Netherlands. Russia also has very large deposits, but I'm not sure you would include it in Europe. Germany and Denmark have offshore deposits as well. Other countries include Italy, Austria, France, Poland, Hungary, Greece and...
Non-renewable. We dig it up out of the ground and we can't make anymore of it. Adding more, Coal is found in the depths of earth in form of natural resources,they are formed by processing of the trees and other biologicalresources
Aquamarine is a nonrenewable gem
Scientists have to keep working hard on all kinds of alternative energy sources. Enough sunlight lands on the earth in one day to provide all our electricity needs for a year ! . Solar power . Wind power . Water power . Heat from the earth and the oceans ... can all be harnessed and...
I have questioned that to, but greatly think it's oil.
It has a lot of importance since most of the world's fuel is based on petroleum in some way.
Because the get their coal by rail.
Alberta's oil sands has proven reserves of about 168 billionbarrels; the third-largest proven crude oil reserve in the world,after Saudi Arabia and Venezuela.
Russia, Saudi Arabia, United States, Iran, and China.
- They are non-renewable - Burning of fossil fuels leads to the greenhouse effect - Fossil Fuels creates pollution
remains from dead plants and animals
Well the fossil fuels are oils, and thus they burn. Go into the chem section and ask there. All i know is that they are carbon composite, which allows them to burn.
Of the fossil fuels, natural gas emits less carbon dioxide than oil (though the gas itself, methane, is a powerful greenhouse gas and there are serious leakage problems with its use). Any of the renewable sources of energy are better than oil. Solar, geothermal, wind, hydro etc, all have zero...
NO? :P I have the same question
Coal mining is a dangerous job in the coal mines, as you see by the devastating explosion just recently. Coal also produces many harmful gases into our atmosphere, so renewable resources are safer for people, animals, the earth, and everything!
1. Overburden O/B 2. Coal / ore 3. Interburden (or parting), I/B 4. Waste Sometimes: Waste = O/B + I/B (look at the context) Waste (O/B + I/B) needs to be removed to get access to coal / ore What Is Stripping Ratio ? a. Measures relative deposit depth Q: How important is depth...
Many countries have coal. Not so many have oil or natural gas.
Coal is a hydrocarbon rock formed from geologically trapped deposits of plant matter which were formed over millions of years. The oldest coal deposits are as much as 350 million years old; the youngest are about 15 million years old. Deposits that are younger than that do not have all the physical...
Anything that can be burned is waste biomass. Plastic, paper, garbage, and the like.
Coal was formed from the remains of plants and animals under highpressure. The sediment on top of the remains provides the pressureto convert peat into coal.
