How much coal is required to generate 1 ton of steam?
As a rule of thumb you would need about 138 Kg of coal (26GJ/Ton) to produce 1 ton of steam.

depends upon your water input.... if you are supplying 100 deg C water, then 540 KCal
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
Type your answer here... 650 kw
It would take 1 ton of water to create 1 ton of steam.
75 m3 of natural gas.
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.
3.5 tonns of coal is required for producing 1 mw
Too many variables to answer- type of coal? Pickup or delivered? Where? Prices may range from $30-$65 per ton.
40 -50 cubic ft. relative to the cut of coal, rice, lump etc.
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
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
1 tonne of coal generates 2,460 Kilowatt hours of electricity.
