If it is good coal there should not be any sand
more than 5000 bits of it to make a tone of oilor mabie its 10000 yea 2nd won is write
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
A gram of TNT releases 980-1100 calories upon explosion. To define the tonne of TNT, this was arbitrarily standardized to 1000 thermochemical calories = 1 gram TNT = 418…4 J (exactly). To put this into perspective, a gram of food carbohydrate has approximately 4 kcal of energy, versus 1 kcal for a gram of TNT. This definition is a conventional one. Explosives' energy is normally calculated using the thermodynamic work energy of detonation, which for TNT has been accurately measured at 1120 calth/g from large numbers of air blast experiments and theoretically calculated to be 1160 calth/g. The measured pure heat output of a gram of TNT is only 651 thermochemical calories ≈ 2724 J, but this is not the important value for explosive blast effect calculations. One ton(metric) = 1000 kg = 1,000,000 grams (one million), so contains 1000 million calories.
The titanic used 825 tons of coal per day.
50% of carbon dioxode is released burnind coal
onlneconversion.com should have what you need for any conversion.
You want to know how many barrels of oil to be burnt to produce the same amount of heat as one ton of coal can produce?
If you can explain what you mean by 'it' then we might get somewhere.
First off you would need to know the energy value of the oil, that is the amount of energy released during the combustion of a specified amount of the oil, eg kj/mol. The en…ergy value for paraffin is around 46Mj/kg. 46 megajoules per kilogram, or 46million joules. One tonne is one thousand kilograms, so one tonne of paraffin would contain 46 thousand megajoules, or 46 gigajoules (46Gj).
How many tons of coals would be needed to produce the same energy as one hundred twenty tons of uranium?
