When fossil fuels are burned or used, it releases toxins into the air. This can cause water pollution because those toxins are evaporated and are present in rain, which falls into water sources.
Asked in Pollution, Fossil Fuels
Water pollution can occur from burning fossil fuels due to?
Water pollution can occur from burning fossil fuels due to the acid rain. Fossil fuels will pollute the atmosphere which will result into acid rain. ...
Asked in Fossil Fuels
Use of fossil fuels contributes to which of the following?
Air pollution, water pollution, and global warming.
Asked in Fossil Fuels, Pollution, Air Pollution
Does fossil fuel causes water pollution?
yes Answer: Fsssi fuels can be gases (methane), liquids (oils) or solids (coal). The mining and recovery processes for all of these can create water pollution but these are, in general, the same as the emissions from any mining or industrial process and cannot be attributed to the fact that they are fossil fuels. The use or accidental loss of gaseous fossil fuels generally creates no water pollution. The use of liquid fossil fuels creates few water related problems except in the...

Is hydroelectric power better than fossil fuels?
Hydroelectric power is better than fossil fuels because it is renewable. The water cycle ensures that there will always be water flowing downstream to turn turbines. Fossil fuels take millions of years to create. ...
What harmful effects can arise from producing and using fossil fuels?
Habitat destruction, air pollution, increased greenhouse effect and water pollution ...
Asked in Fossil Fuels
What does fossil fuel mix with to create carbon dioxide water and heat?
Fossil fuel mixes with pressure to create carbon dioxide, water, and heat. This process takes millions of years to create which severally limits the prolonged usage of fossil fuels. ...
Asked in Air Pollution, Global Warming
How are fossil fuels related to air pollution and acid precipitation?
When fossil Fuels are burned, they release sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide into the atmosphere causing air pollution. When these pollutants combine with water in the atmosphere, they form sulfuric acid and nitric acid, which makes acid precipitation. ...
Asked in Global Warming, Pollution
What are the sources and sinks of sulphur oxide pollution?
Sources of sulfur oxide pollution are engine combustion of fossil fuels, & metal extraction from ore. Water is the main sink for sulfur oxide. ...
What are the primary products of the complete combustion of fossil fuels?
Carbon Dioxide and water are the primary combustion products of fossil fuels. ...
How do water mills save energy resources?
Water mills use the power of running water to pump water, to grind wheat into flour, and other uses. By using the renewable energy of moving water the mill does not use electricity, which is usually generated by burning fossil fuels. This is a saving of electricity, of money, of fossil fuels and it reduces carbon dioxide pollution of the environment. ...
Asked in Science, Chemistry, Elements and Compounds
The primary products of complete combustion of fossil fuels are?
The primary products of the complete combustion of fossil fuels is: CARBON DIOXIDE and WATER.=) ...
Asked in Fossil Fuels, Air Pollution
Can burning of fossil fuels cause acid rain?
Yes, most definitely! Acid rain is the acidification of water, which is caused when toxins such as carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide (which are released by burning fossil fuels) react chemically with the water to lower the pH and create carbonic or sulphuric acid. ...
Asked in Chemistry, Fossil Fuels, Organic Chemistry
Why does burning fossil fuels create carbon dioxide?
Because the combustion of organic compounds in the presence of oxygen produces carbon dioxide and water. ...
Asked in Physics, Chemistry, Fossil Fuels
What kind of energy do you start with when burning fossil fuels?
Fossil fuels are a source of chemical energy. Chemically conbining the hydrocarbons in fossil fuels with air is combustion and primarily produces carbon dioxide and water. (There are many more details of the chemistry of the specific fossil fuels and many other results of their combustion besides the predominant gasses of water and carbon dioxide.) ...
Where does global warming happens?
Many things cause global warming. One thing that causes global warming is electrical pollution. Electricity causes pollution in many ways, some worse than others. In most cases, fossil fuels are burned to create electricity. Fossil fuels are made of dead plants and animals. Some examples of fossil fuels are oil and petroleum. Many pollutants (chemicals that pollute the air, water, and land) are sent into the air when fossil fuels are burned. Some of these chemicals are called greenhouse gasses. We use these...
Asked in Fossil Fuels
What does heat from fossil fuels used to boil water turn into in order to generate electricity?
Heat from fossil fuels is used to boil water and turn it into steam in order to generate electricty. ...
