It takes one ton of coal to generate an average of 2500 KWH of electricity.
1000 N 80per min
Too many variables to answer- type of coal? Pickup or delivered? Where? Prices may range from $30-$65 per ton.
it takes 800 gallons of water to make 1 megawatt-hour of electricity (1000 kWh).
It would take 1 ton of water to create 1 ton of steam.
3.5 tonns of coal is required for producing 1 mw
75 m3 of natural gas.
generally for a condensing turbine the quantity for generating one MW electricity the steam quantity remains 8.5 t/h. it will depend on the design of Turbine in Our project it… is 5.5 t/MW
Since steam is a gas (water vapor). This depends on the pressure and temperature of the steam. PV = nRT.
Near to 400 pounds. One pound of steam requires the input of 1080 btus of heat added to 32oF water at atmospheric pressure. One ton or 2000 pounds requires the input of 2.16 …million btus, and a boiler with 80% efficiency (common value) will need 2.7 million btus of heat from the combustion of the wood. Assuming the wood has a btu heat content of 6500 btu/lb (commonly most woods are 6000 to 7000 btu/lb) then about 415 pounds of wood are required to produce 1 ton of steam. In practice only 375 pounds of wood are needed to maintain a steady output of one ton of steam in a boiler, as the water when reintroduced into the boiler is very close to the steaming temperature and doesn't need to be heated from 32oF.
1 ton of steam. how much steam is vague question. steam can be at different pressures and saturations. At 212°F, 14.7 psia, liquid water has a specific volume of 0.016716 ft3…/lbm and steam has a specfic volume of 26.80 3/lbm, which is a volume ratio of ~1603 : 1 of steam:water.
an all nighter
It depends on how long you are prepared to wait!
1 ton is about 1000 kg Assuming water is already at 100 C (hot water that just has to boil) it takes 40.7 KJ of energy to convert 1 mole of water to steam 1 cal = 4.184 J 1 m…ole water = 18 grams 4.5 x 106 cal per what mass of coal?? again I'll assume 1 ton of coal. (1 ton Steam) x (1000 kg/ton) x (1000g/kg) = 1 x 106 grams (1 ton water)x(106grams/ton)x(1mole/18grams)x(40.7x103 J/mole)x(1 cal/4.184J) = E Where E represents the energy to vaporize 1 ton water measured in cal. now divide this answer by the 4.5x106 cal/(ton??) this will give the mass of coal needed assuming no heat loss to the environment.
The answer will depend on the starting temperature of the water. It will also depend on the pressure.
