How many kilowatthours are produced by 1 ton bituminous coal?

already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

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 reduces 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

How many liters in 1 ton?

Short answer = 1,000 liters Long answer. The density of water varies somewhat depending on the temperature and the inclusion of any impurities. But for say, tap water, 1000 liters is 1 tonne. Yes, that is tonne with an 'e' - a metric tonne. 1 liter of water is 1kg, 1,000 liters is 1000kg (1 metric (MORE)

How bituminous coal fields were formed?

They were formed from the remains of the prolific plant material growing in vast marshy areas in the Carboniferous. The plant remains did not rot in their shallow water environment and formed layer after layer of sediment which was eventually covered with subsequent layers of additional sediments re (MORE)

1 ton is how many metric tons?

1,000 kilograms 1 Ton is 2240 pounds (Lb) 1 Kg is 2.204 Lb, so 1 ton is 2240/2.204 = 1016.3 Kg This equates to 1.0163 metric tons, correctly known as tonnes.

What is the difference between bituminous coal and anthracite coal?

Answer . The main difference is the amount of carbon. Anthracite is harder and contains more carbon. Bituminous coal is a sedimentary rock and anthracite coal is actually a metamorphic rock that has undergone tremendous pressures, usually from mountain building events.

How many BTU per ton of coal?

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 heating 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 (MORE)

How much carbon dioxide does a ton of coal produce?

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. However, the coefficients for the coals that are primarily used in electricity production, bituminous and sub-bituminous are 4 (MORE)

How many amps to 1 ton?

Amps are a measure of electricity, a ton is a measure of weight, the two can not be compared.

How many meter in 1 ton?

This is unanswerable because the first and second parts of the question are incompatible; a meter is a unit of distance and a ton is a unit of weight. A meter is a unit of length A ton is a unit of weight. The two don't convert

How many kilowatthours in one hour?

Kilo = 1000. Watts the produce of Amps x Volts. One hour is not divided up into kilowatt hours, it is the use of 1000 watts over a period of one hour.

What is bituminous coal used for?

The bituminous coals are considered to be 'all purpose' coals,and because of its excellent heating quality and the ease with which it can be handled, it is the most extensively used fuel in the world. In inditries it can be used for steam raising ,heating purposes, gasification, and coking

How are bituminous coal and anthracite coal alike?

Bituminous coal is relatively soft and dull, as opposed to anthracite which is hard and shiny. Anthracite is also much more dense and pure. Because of its purity (can be up to 98% carbon), Anthracite burns a very hot, smokeless flame.

Which is better bituminous or anthracite coal?

Anthracite is a better type of coal than bituminous, anthracite is the best type of coal because it is the purest type of coal as it has the highest amount of carbon content present in it. It is made up of 90-95% of carbon content, so, it has a higher calorific value and burns without a smoke. Anthr (MORE)

What is bituminous coal made of?

it is made by remnants of plants or animals. or something. i dunno im pretty sure its from some plant remnants under sedimentary layers.

How many watts to 1 ton?

Watts is a measurement of power which is the rate of consumption of energy, i.e. energy/time. 1 Ton is a measurement of weight. Power and weight are totally different things. The closest you could get is perhaps with a ton of mass to be converted to energy in a nuclear reaction using e=mc^2, and (MORE)

How was bituminous coal formed?

Bituminous coal was formed from the remains of plants through compaction by overlying layers of sediments. The plants were part of a marshy or swampy ecosystem where the plant material did not fully degrade after dying because of the conditions of the water into which it fell.

How many tons are in 1 ton?

Is bituminous coal formed from anthracite coal?

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.
