If it is good coal there should not be any sand
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?
One joule is 0.0009478 BTU.
There is no defined unit called the calimeter.
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.
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?
When 1000 joules of coal is burned it only produces 500 joules of electricity What happened to the other 500 joules of energy?
Heat losses from the boiler flue, turbines, etc. Losses in the alternators - it takes an appreciable power simply to rotate them at generating speed without any load. 50% ef…ficiency is probably quite good!
According to Unit Juggler, 29307600 J are in 1 kg of hard coal. Hope this helps :)
