Fossil fuels must be burned to release their energy.
In a nuclear or fossil fired power station, nuclear or chemical energy is changed to thermal energy, which is changed to mechanical energy, which is then changed to electrical energy
Electricity is a major form of energy. Also chemical energy which all fossil fuels posess.
Typically the nuclear energy is converted to electricity and the electricity powers the device. No much differently than the chemical energy in fossil fuels is often converted to electricity and the electricity powers the device.
electricity is a form of energy and fossil fuels are what is burned to generate energy. so no its not
Fossil fuel is burn and release out chemical energy in the form of heat that would use to boil the water to steam and transform heat to mechanical energy to run the turbine and finally transform to electricity.
It is changed into electricity by a machine.It is used to heat water which, when changed into steam, powers the turbines, these then turn the generators to produce electricity
the energy that is in fossil fuels is chemical and radiant energy.
Fossil fuels contain chemical energy; chemical energy is a type of potential energy.
The potential chemical energy in fossil fuels and food was stored by plants that converted the sun's radiant energy into chemical energy.
A simple answer is that fossil fuels are burnt. The heat is used to produce steam which drives mechanical turbines and dynamos, which then produce electricity.
No. Fossil fuels store chemical energy. It is this chemical energy we tap by using them for fuels.
Fossil fuels cannot generate energy, however they can convert the energy present in them to other forms of energy. For example if you burn them, the chemical energy in them will be converted to light and heat energy. Add in some turbines, pipes and a generator and you have electricity (electrical energy). So in a way, they can "generate energy" but note that they ARE energy already. They are used to make electricity; they are actually what most of our electricity comes from. The fossil fuel is burned, and the heat boils some water, which evaporates and is channeld through a turbine, which spins creating electricity
Fossil fuels such as coal store chemical kinetic energy?
Fossil fuels contain chemical energy.
Burning them releases the chemical energy.
When you burn it, the chemical energy is converted to thermal energy.
Yes, it is. Because coal and fuel(oil) are both fossil fuels and contain stored chemical energy that needs no further treatment to produce thermal energy as they burn. So fossil fuel is a form of chemical energy.
Fossil fuels contain chemical energy, which is a form of potential energy.
The energy source of fossil fuels comes from chemical bonds.
