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.
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
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.
As a rule of thumb you would need about 138 Kg of coal (26GJ/Ton) to produce 1 ton of steam.
it had over5,892
A coal car can hold between 234,800 to 242,300 pounds.
Too many variables to answer- type of coal? Pickup or delivered? Where? Prices may range from $30-$65 per ton.
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. Ho…wever, the coefficients for the coals that are primarily used in electricity production, bituminous and sub-bituminous are 4,931 and 3,716 respectively. See the EIA related link for more information.
tons a 10 wheeler will hold depends on the configuration of the truck. a lot has to do with the distance of the axles from each other. when loading a truck to get correc…t weight the load is distributed to get proper weight over axles. but benerally a 10 wheeler is only tagged to gross 54 ooo pounds. so with that you need to subtract the weight of the empty truck to find out what the actual payload will be
Weight of half a ton A ton is two thousand pounds so half a ton should be one thousand pounds
If it is good coal there should not be any sand
