A barrel of crude oil has 5,800,000 Btu. A typical short ton (2,000 pounds) of coal has 20,754,000 Btu. Therefore, 559 pounds of coal would equal one barrel of oil in energy.

Coal energy is energy derived from the burning of coal. Coal is essentially fossilized carbon.


coal have chemical energy


the sun is where coal gets it energy.


Not really. Energy is released when coal is burned. It is not coal itself, but the reaction of oxygen and coal once ignited that results in energy.


Yes,coal is a source of energy................


Electricity from coal is the electric power made from the energy stored in coal. Carbon, made from ancient plant material, gives coal most of its energy. This energy is released when coal is burned.


The energy in coal is chemical energy. The usual way to extract it is to burn the coal converting it to heat energy. This can then be turned into electrical energy Fuels like gasoline and coal are sources of energy which means they store energy

Burning coal is thermal energy. It can be used to produce mechanical energy.


Coal, and other fuels, have chemical energy, which is a type of potential energy. If you pick up the coal and toss it, it has kinetic energy (energy due to motion).


A coal-fired energy plant is one that burns coal (as the source of energy) to make electricity or drive machinery.


Anthracite coal, it insulates the heat energy better and has more light energy when lit.


The energy stored in coal that is converted to heat is chemical energy. Of course coal, like any other matter, also has stored nuclear energy.
