In short, No. Coal comes in the middle of the pack when fuels are compared. Propane produces 21500 BTU per pound, Gasoline 17500 BTU per pound, Coal between 12,000 BTU per pound (Anthracite) to 10,000 BTU per pound (Bituminous) and wood (dried) 7000 BTU or so. On the other hand, Coal can be converted to Gasoline using a process developed during WWII, or to Methane (modern) or to "Town Gas", a mixture of Hydrogen and Carbon Monoxide.
burn it and it give off heat which is transferred into energy
when burning coal it gives off heat energy
Anthracite coal, it insulates the heat energy better and has more light energy when lit.
Most reactions give off energy. They don't usually use energy
if a piece of coal catches fire while cooking, turn off the propane. If you dont turn off the propane. it will give it more energy to the fire. And your bbq will blow up.
Not sure if this will answer your question, but I'll give it a shot. It's less about the fact that is is coal and more about the fact that coal gives off heat. When coal was first being used as a heat source, it was cheaper than wood and there was a lot of it. So really the origin of the energy is in the heat that the coal generates when on fire and less about the coal itself.
Natural gas, it gives off 55kj per gram whereas coal gives off 30kj and oil 45kj.
A coal-fired power station works by burning coal to give off heat, which heats water and produces steam. The steam is then used to push generator turbines; which generate energy.
Infrared light doesn't "give off" energy; in this case, it IS the energy.
Coal is burned and the energy is created from the heat of the coal burning and is collected and used and it gives off more energy than other things like peanuts for example. And coal is used for electricity and also heating homes in some places.
how much energy does the sun give off in a day?
you give off calary and diet energy
it gives of carbon dioxide when it is burned
Any fossil fuels give off pollution, for example, coal and slag (a by-product of burning coal).
Yes the sun does give off solar energy. It also gives off heat and light energy.
ATP is generated in the mitochondria. They do not give off energy as such.They stores energy in ATP. This energy is used for biological activities
No, Nuclear energy doesnot give off Carbon dioxide.
An energy source is something that gives off energy. Such as sun, wind, water, coal. Sun is important in producing solar energy, wind is important for wind energy, Water for hydroelectric power And coal for thermal power.
It gives off energy
It gives off energy.
Computers give off mostly heat, but also give off magnetism in the form of radio waves. Plus their displays give off light energy and the speakers give off sound waves. The fans inside create kinetic energy.
Group 17, halogens
Radioactive elements give off atomic energy by spontaneous decay.Fissionable elements give off atomic energy by fissioning when struck by neutrons.Fusible elements give off atomic energy by thermonuclear fusion at very high temperature and pressure.
what energy does combustion give off <---- that answer fails that is the same as the question. It gives off heat and light B)
