How is electricity generated using coal and wind?
An electricity generator is basically a magnet spinning inside a stationery coil of copper wire. This produces electricity.
Anything that can spin the magnet will work. So wind blowing on the blades of a windmill will turn it, and this produces electricity.
Using coal, the coal is burnt and turns water into steam. This steam turns the propellor, which rotates the magnet, and electricity is produced.
There are big differences between the two ways of generation.
- Coal is non renewable, dirty and costly. We have to dig it out of the ground, and mining and then burning it produces a lot of pollution, not least of which is carbon dioxide, which is causing global warming.
- Wind, on the other hand, is renewable, clean and free!
# Electricity generated by the burning of coal. # Electricity generated by the burning of wood. # Electricity generated by the burning of oil. # Electricity generated by the nuclear fission. # Electricity generated by the turbines driven by water in rivers. # Electricity generated by the turbines driven by wind in windswept places. # Natural gas used in your home for heating, cooking, cooling etc.
Electricity itself is irrelevant it is the powers source used to generate the electricity that matters. If the electricity is generated in a coal, oil, or natural gas power station then the electrical energy produced is from an non renewable resource. If however the power is generated using wind, or water then the energy produces is form a renewable resource.
We are all adding to global warming when we use electricity, whenever that electricity is generated from fossil fuels. This does not mean that we, or the people of Illinois, should stop using electricity, although there are mreasures we can take to reduce our usage. What Illinois can do is to move away from using coal and oil to generate electricity and towards using renewable resourcesuch as wind, solar and geothermal resources.
Electrolysis uses high amounts of electricity which need to be generated. Electricity can be generated using renewable methods such as wind farms, but at the moment most electricity comes from the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas), which releases carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas which is causing global warming.
water, wind, tide, coal and nuclear, there are many sources. if u want to know exact source of the electricity u r using, u'd better consult your parents or teachers. electricity is generated by dynamo which is operated by those metioned above, and dynamo is a medium that transform kinetic energy to electricity.

Electricity can be generated by a windmill. Basically, the wind spins these windmills and the windmill traps this energy used to spin the windmill and converts it into electricity. However there are many other ways to generate electricity such as using solar panels (trapping sunlight and converting it into electricity)
Coal power stations burn coal to heat water to produce steam, which is then used to spin electricity turbines to generate electricity. The burning coal releases carbon dioxide. Wind farms have blades which turn in the wind to spin electricity turbines to generate electricity. There are no harmful carbon dioxide emissions.
Using electricity plays a part in increasing global warming. Most electricity is generated by burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas). This releases carbon dioxide (CO2), a powerful greenhouse gas. Changing to renewable energy (solar, wind, water, hydro, tidal and wave, geothermal, ocean thermal, biomass and biofuel) would stop this.
The boiling water itself does not increase the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. This is just water vapor, which is itself a greenhouse gas, but is not carbon dioxide. However, in order to boil the water, you need heat. This heat can be generated by 1) burning wood, 2) burning natural gas, or 3) using electricity. Burning wood or natural gas releases carbon dioxide. Using electricity does not release carbon dioxide, but generating…
The short answer: Wind blows on a propeller-like construct causing it to rotate, and the rotation drives an electric generator. The principle of generating electricity from wind is the same as for getting it from water, coal or petrol - they all use mechanical rotation to generate electricity, the difference is where the mechanical rotation comes from: Hydro: Running water - water turbine - electricity Coal: Burning coal - boiling liquid - steam turbine…
Electricity is generated by a number of means. Generators may be turned by water power, steam, and wind. Electricity may be generated by photoelectric systems that convert light to electricity. In small generators, an internal combustion engine powered by gasoline, diesel, or gas is used to turn the generator.
The amount of CO2 generated from electricity (kWh) is dependant upon the way the electricity is generated. Burning a barrel of oil to produce electricity yields far more CO2 than generating the same amount of electricity from wind or water. One should contact their electricity provider to get a break-down of how the electricity is generated.
Electricity is most often generated at a power station by electromagnetically generators, primarily driven by heat engines fueled by chemical combustion or nuclear fission but also by other means such as the kinetic energy of flowing water and wind. So if the electromagnetically generators were to mix with the kinetic energy of the flowing water there will be so many bad damages if you were near the reaction.
Computers like most household gadgets use electricity which is made (usually) by burning coal and using the energy given off from the coal to turn some turbines which create electricity using static. Though solar panels and wind turbines do not create any pollution which contributes to global warming.
Heaters that burn fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) or wood produce greenhouse gases. Heaters that run on electricity are responsible for greenhouse gases emitted when the electricity was generated, usually by burning fossil fuels. If the electricity was generated from renewable sources (solar, wind, water, hydro, tidal and wave, geothermal, ocean thermal, and hydrogen) then few greenhouse gases were emitted.
