How big is a ton of coal?
1 Ton(2000lbs) coal is appox 40 cubic feet this varies by the character of the coal and the honesty of the weight

50,000 tons to 200,000 tons, depending upon the size of the vessel.
fifoenergy.com says 35.314 cubic feet per 1 ton of bituminous coal. My coal supplier tells me to figure about 36 cubic feet for my antrhacite pea coal wikiansw…ers says about 40 cubic feet per ton of antrhacite.
30,000,000 BTUs Per Ton. Will vary depending on the grade of coal.
Coal has an energy value of 24 Megajoules/kg, which is the same as 6.67 kwh/kg. However a coal fired power plant will only have an efficiency of about 30 per cent so this redu…ces to 2.0 kwh/kg. Now when you say 1 ton, do you mean 2240 lb, 2000 lb, or 1000 kg (metric ton) ? I will assume 1000kg as it makes the arithmetic easier, in fact 2.0 kwh/kg comes to 2000 kwh/metric ton. Note that kilowatt is a power, kilowatthour (kwh) is an amount of energy, which is what you wanted. If you want it for a short ton of 2000 lb, this will become 1814 kwh, and for a ton of 2240 lb it will be 2032 kwh
Anthracite Anthracite is coal with the highest carbon content, between 86 and 98 percent, and a heat value of nearly 15,000 BTUs-per-pound. Most frequently associated w…ith home heating, anthracite is a very small segment of the U.S. coal market. There are 7.3 billion tons of anthracite reserves in the United States, found mostly in 11 northeastern counties in Pennsylvania. Bituminous The most plentiful form of coal in the United States, bituminous coal is used primarily to generate electricity and make coke for the steel industry. The fastest growing market for coal, though still a small one, is supplying heat for industrial processes. Bituminous coal has a carbon content ranging from 45 to 86 percent carbon and a heat value of 10,500 to 15,500 BTUs-per-pound. Subbituminous Ranking below bituminous is subbituminous coal with 35-45 percent carbon content and a heat value between 8,300 and 13,000 BTUs-per-pound. Reserves are located mainly in a half-dozen Western states and Alaska. Although its heat value is lower, this coal generally has a lower sulfur content than other types, which makes it attractive for use because it is cleaner burning. Lignite Lignite is a geologically young coal which has the lowest carbon content, 25-35 percent, and a heat value ranging between 4,000 and 8,300 BTUs-per-pound. Sometimes called brown coal, it is mainly used for electric power generation.
2 tons No. A modern coal car carries 120 tons of coal. Some older ones carry 100 tons. On the B&O division of CSX, coal trains are usually 80 or 120 car unit trains.… The length of the train is usually governed by the size of the originating or destination yard.
20 Million BTU ****************** The heat content of coal varies. Bituminous coal typically has a gross heating value of 30,600,000 BTU per ton. The net heatin…g value is 26,000,000 BTU per ton, assuming 85% efficiency. If you need more precise information, go to the U.S. Department of Energy website at www.doe.gov and search on the heat content of coal. -ecn
A metric ton is 1000 kg (2204.621 lbs). This is nearly equal to a long ton (old English measure for coal) of 2240 lbs. The English (US) short ton measure is 2000 lbs. If a bag… is 40 kg then a metric ton would be 25 bags, a short ton a little more than 22 bags and a long ton a little more than 25 bags.
As a rule of thumb you would need about 138 Kg of coal (26GJ/Ton) to produce 1 ton of steam.
200 billion / 2000 (that is the amount of pounds in a ton) = one hundred million
Those two items are equal in weight. Each weighs exactly 2,000 pounds.
Too many variables to answer- type of coal? Pickup or delivered? Where? Prices may range from $30-$65 per ton.
40 -50 cubic ft. relative to the cut of coal, rice, lump etc.
According to Energy Information Administration (EIA) research, emissions range from 2,791 lbs per short ton for lignite coal to 5,685 lbs per short ton for anthracite coal. Ho…wever, the coefficients for the coals that are primarily used in electricity production, bituminous and sub-bituminous are 4,931 and 3,716 respectively.
