Thanks for the feedback!
The Titanic had 159 coal-burning furnaces fueling the boilers.
The Titanic burned a total of 3,540 tons of coal, averaging 620 tons of coal per day at 21.7 knots. The Titanic had 5,892 tons of coal in approximate measure when she de…parted Southampton.
825 tons of coal per day
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
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.
It used 620 tons.
You burn about 100 calories an hour, that's how much your body needs to just function, so about 2400 calories a day.
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
The coal was burned in the engine room on the very bottom floor. The word is... FURNACE
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.
about 5000, give or take 100 if you enjoy holding your breath
If it is good coal there should not be any sand
