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.
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.
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 nuclear  power plant is around $40 million (US) for 18 months.
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
when fossil fuels is combusted , it produces energy and rest of by  products are poisonous gases like carbon monoxide , sulphites,  nitrites , and solid residue which is non biodegradable
People´s Republic of China
Some are studied and put in museums and the certain fossils are now oils and natural gases

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 of  these range practically from pole to pole around the globe. Many  nations employ extraction technology, and those that don't purchase  oil (in particular) as fuel for transportation. So any place an  airplane flies or a car,...
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 oil  reserves and ranks as the largest producer and exporter of oil in  the 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 regionally  available raw materials such as recycled waste. It is a renewable  energy source and in many cases exerts a very small carbon  footprint.

Different materials boil at different temperatures (generally and  very roughly speaking, for similar molecules the lighter they are  the lower the temperature at which they boil). By raising the  temperature enough to boil the lighter components of a mixture but  not enough to boil the heavier...
That's not QUITE what it does, or at least it's not ALL of what it  does.    For similar compounds, in general, lighter molecules boil - that  is, become a gas - at a lower temperature than heavier ones.    "Cracking" is the process of splitting large, heavy molecules into  smaller,...
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 different  fractions in a fractioning column (via distillation). One of the  shorter chains that has practical uses is petrol.   Fractions include: Fuel oil, Diesel,...
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 quite...
Coal is abundant and easy to convert into electricity.
a lot of many areas in mexico produce petroleum but the biggest  petroleum (oil) reserve is in the town of Tuxpan on the Gulf coast  of Mexico.
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 produce  electricity relative to nuclear energy. Solar energy is abundant  but difficult to harvest compared to coal.
Crude oil is distilled, producing different fractions at different temperatures.
Basketballs do contain petroleum.
Yes it is possible to do that.
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 For...
No, it is preferable to use outdoor air which is then expelled  rather 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.
factories,bbq's and cars
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 (CO2).
yes; aquamarine gems are a non renewable source.
By economic principles, opening up to trade will create a new"world price" that must be adhered to. This will allocate goods inthe most efficient way.
No, Natural Gas is called Natural Gas. Obsidian is a glossy black, naturally occurring volcanic glass. Used for razors by the native Americans, jewelry by the Egyptians, etc.
 Oil,  Coal,  Natural gas,  Petroleum,  Diesel,  Aviation fuel.  
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
Mostly it's burned for energy.
the good things are without coal and oil we would not be able to heat our homes
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 any  more 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 biological  resources
Aquamarine is a nonrenewable gem
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 billion  barrels; 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
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 in surface...
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 high  pressure. The sediment on top of the remains provides the pressure  to convert peat into coal.

Burning coal releases enormous amounts of carbon dioxide into the air, and is a very large source of global warming as a result. It also releases various other pollutants and contributes to acid rain among other problems.   A: Coal is certainly a carbon sink and the burning of coal does put CO2...
in the ground :)
Sand and silt changed to rock, covering organic material, and trapped it beneath the rock. Pressure and heat changed some of this organic material into coal, some into oil, and some into natural gas.
Coal that has become diamond.

Cracking, isomerisation and reforming are usually used to make smaller branched alkanes from the long-chained alkanes. Small branched alkanes can not pack as closely together, so they have weak Van der Waals forces. It means that the products will have low boiling points and are better fuels as they...
Marsden Point Oil Refinery is a refinery located at Marsden Point,  Whangarei, Northland, New Zealand. It is the only oil refinery in  New Zealand, and is operated by Refining NZ.
Two common problems with the development of gas field are Lack of a local marketInsufficient rates or recoverable markets. Gas is different than oil, because it is not easily transported in many places of the world. A gas discovery in the US generally can be connected fairly easily to an existing...
The relationship Is that a renewable resource can generate  up to the sun but The Inexhaustible resource goes up but then flows  down to the renews of the the resources
Answer . \nDo the math: Amps x Volts = Watts. Your house is mostly 120V and each circuit is usually 15amps (not counting large appliances).
Broad area of the earth can be studied using satellite imagery. Satellite imagery can help to determine where the density of the ground changes (gravitational surveys). Seismic studies are critical in identifying the location of hydrocarbons. That is, they would set of small explosions which would...
I very seldom "fill up" my truck anymore due to high fuel costs. I posed that question to a clerk in one of the RaceTrac stations. He did not know where there gas came from other then the gasoline truck that comes and fills up the underground storages.Pure speculation but: I'd think RaceTrack buys...
