Best Answer

Yes, the burning of any hydrocarbon produces carbon dioxide. This equation illustrates the burning of a hydrocarbon.

CH4 + 2O2 → CO2 + 2H2O + energy

As you can see carbon dioxide is produced along with water and energy.
Yes burning coal or any carbon based fuel produces carbon dioxide.

Why coal does not give out water?

Coal is an allotrope of carbon. When burnt, coal will give carbon dioxide. Water is not formed, because there is no hydrogen in coal that will be oxidised to water.


Is carbon dioxide produced by burning coal and natural gas?

'Is carbon dioxide produced by burning' carbon rich compounds in an oxygen rich environment, I'm only going to give you one guess at this - better make it a good one!


Why do homes use natural gas for central heating instead of coal or oil?

It is because it is cleaner in burning and does not give a lot of carbon dioxide.


Does electricity give out carbon dioxide?

No. Electrcity cannot emit carbon dioxide itself. However, the process of creating electricity emits carbon dioxide as it usually requires large amounts of burning of oils and coal which are fossil fuels. An alternative would be natural power such as solar or wind.


What does burning fossil fuel give off?

Burning fossil fuels such as natural gas, coal, oil and gasoline raises the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and carbon dioxide is a major contributor to the greenhouse effect and global warming.


What does coal give off?

it gives of carbon dioxide when it is burned


Does water give oxygen or carbon dioxide?

water has gives oxygen but it does not give out anything. carbon dioxide is created by the burning of fossil fuels


Does fire give off carbon dioxide?

If it is burning carbon or something that contains carbon, yes.


Does coal give any disease?

Coal has Tar, which is a carcinogen. Also incomplete burning of Coal emits Carbon Monoxide, which is a respiratory poison.


Where can i find a diagram of How does burning coal make carbon dioxide?

The related link below, will not give you a diagram, but may help with future questions. Remember, these particular sites are not always accurate.


What gases do candles give off when burning?

It produces carbon dioxide and vapour


Why are carbon dioxide levels increasing?

Because the burning off of all of the fossil fuels.Carbon dioxide is produced whenever fossil fuels such as coal and gasoline are burned. Because there is so much combustion of these compounds taking place, the amount of carbon dioxide produced is enough to alter the concentration of this compound in the atmosphere. This is bad because carbon dioxide traps heat near the earth's surface, causing climate change.Cars, burning of woods and most everyday things give off carbon dioxide, slowly this builds up in the atmosphere and cannot escape. If more electric cars and other "green" ways of producing energy are made, the carbon dioxide will slowly be used up by trees, and then the trees will give out oxygen.They are rising because humans are releasing lots of carbon dioxide into the air by using cars, burning coal for electricity, and many other reasonsbuse therot is growingCarbon dioxide is produced whenever fossil fuels such as coal and gasoline are burned.

What do hydrocarbons give off when they are heated?

The products of hydrocarbons burning are carbon dioxide and water.


What is the carbon cycle and why is it called a cycle?

The carbon cycle is the cycle in which carbon moves around...well, here's a "simple" description: Humans take in oxygen and change it to carbon dioxide. Burning things and the fire itself, also releases carbon dioxide. It's not just humans; it's also animals like dogs and cats that take in oxygen and give off carbon dioxide. We do it with every breath. So, how come we don't run out of oxygen and have carbon dioxide in its place? Well, plants take in carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. Go basically: Animals breathe out carbon dioxide, burning things give off carbon dioxide, and plants take in carbon dioxide and give off the oxygen that we use and change to carbon dioxide. It is a cycle because it keeps happening and happening and the carbon dioxide "goes around in a circle."


If burning sugar is a chemical reaction can you give me an evidence?

Burning is a chemical reaction; sugar is transformed in carbon dioxide and water.


What is burning coal?

Burning coal is an exothermic reaction as it give heat


Why does Coal give off a large amount of carbon?

Coal is essentially made out of carbon and when that carbon is burned it combines with Oxygen in the air to produce CO (Carbon monoxide) and CO2 (Carbon dioxide) gases both of which contribute to global warming.


What gases does burning carbon give off?

If carbon undergoes incomplete combustion the product formed is carbon monoxide.If it undergoes complete combustion then the product is carbon dioxide.


Does fire produce carbon dioxide?

yes, fire gives off carbon dioxide and takes in oxygen Additional answer It does rather depend on what it is that's burning in the fire. A fire that's entirely hydrogen burning would not produce carbon dioxide. Where would the carbon come from? Likewise, magnesium burning would not produce any.


What process give off carbon dioxide to the atmosphere?

The combustion of fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas).


Which method of generating electricity produces carbon dioxide?

Coal power stations will give off CO2 emissions.


What gas does burning oil give off?

it burns off carbon monoxide If the gas is burning completely, it should be giving off carbon dioxide and water. Carbon monoxide is the result of incomplete combustion.


Do electric cars give out carbon dioxide?

It depends on the source of the electricity used to power them. Power plants can generate carbon dioxide a lot (coal and oil fired) or a little (watering nuclear), Although the car does not itself generate carbon dioxide the source of its power does and so the car is responsible for the carbon dioxide footprint. In areas serviced by coal fired power plants the carbon footprint of an electric car may be very similar to that of a hybrid or efficient conventional fuel car.


How can human activity give rise to global warming?

Human activity gave rise to global warming by burning fossil fuels coal, (oil and natural gas) and deforestation, when we cut down the forests that used to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.


Do electric cars give out carbon emissions?

No but they need to be charged and the production of electricity uses a lot, most is made from burning coal.
