Is sunlight a fossil fuel?
No, but all fossil fuels are highly concentrated forms of far-ancient sunlight trapped in organic cells.
Coal is a fossil fuel. It stores energy derived from sunlight by organisms that later died, were buried and later on became this fuel.
Fossil fuels were originally either prehistoric zooplankton and algae (which became petroleum) or plant material (which generally became coal). In either case, the living organisms converted the energy of sunlight into their structures. By using the energy of the fossil fuel, we use the energy the original organisms captured, and that's the connection to sunlight.
Green plants that made energy from sunlight by the process of photosynthesis stored the energy in the form of organic compounds. These compounds became the fossil fuels that we burn today.
All the energy for living things and all the energy for fossil fuel, hydroelectric and wind energy comes form the energy of sunlight. Without sunlight there would be no life and Earth would be a frozen dead planet.
Fossil fuels are coal,oil and natural gas. They are not themselves photochemical smog. That is a complex mixture caused by the action of sunlight on air containing substances released when fuels burn. Thus it is connected to fossil fuels, but it is not the same thing.
Yes it is a fossil fuel.
methane is a fossil fuel.
Uranium is not a fossil fuel and cannot be a fossil fuel.
No its not a fossil fuel
Energy released by burning fossil fuel represents energy originally captured from sunlight by prehistoric plants in photosynthesis..
Oil is a fossil fuel.
Yes. Fossil fuels include coal and petroleum (oil) that were created millions of years ago and were buried under layers of rock that protected them. Burning fossil fuels such as gasoline, diesel fuel, and coal releases stored carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. This carbon dioxide, when released by burning, increases the amount of heat form sunlight that is retained in the earth's atmosphere and is thought to contribute to global warming.
Coal is a fossil fuel.
is peat a fossil fuel
Yes it is a fossil fuel.
a living fossil fuel.
Fossil fuel is cheap
Yes,it is a fossil fuel.
the most fossil fuel that humans use is the solid fossil fuel. and it is coal
Apart from round geothermal centers, all the energy in the biosphere and in the fossil fuel reserves of the planet has its origins in sunlight.
Fuel from coal and petroleum, which is believed to be of fossil origin. Fuel from coal and petroleum, which is believed to be of fossil origin. Fuel from coal and petroleum, which is believed to be of fossil origin. Fuel from coal and petroleum, which is believed to be of fossil origin.
GAS I take it this is an American answering. As a British person, OIL is a liquid fossil fuel, COAL is a solid fossil fuel and NATURAL GAS is a gaseous fossil fuel.
Oil is not a fossil fuel, its Abiotic
Yes, oil is a fossil fuel.
yes gas is a fossil fuel
Uranium is not considered as a fossil fuel.
Uranium is not a fossil fuel.
Oil is considered a fossil fuel.
Sorry, no, wool is not a fossil fuel.
Gasoline is a fossil fuel.
No, it is not a fossil. It is a fossil fuel.
No it isn't a fossil fuel. Fossil fuels include coal and oil.
No, time is not a fossil fuel. Fossil fuels are coal, oil and natural gas.
Oil is a liquid fossil fuel.
It is the oldest fossil fuel
gas comes from fossil fuel.
Nuclear power is NOT a fossil fuel.
no granite is not a fossil fuel it is a nonrenewable resource.
Actually you cannot talk about common things in fossil fuel and petroleum.This things at the point that petroleum is a fossil fuel.
Ancient Sunlight is essentially Oil and fossil fuels.
The basic principle of energy conversion in an internal combustion engine is changing chemical energy (fuel) into heat and kinetic energy. The chemical energy in the fuel (fossil fuel) is ancient sunlight gathered by the organisms whose dead bodies were the source of the oil.
Fossil fuels contain the chemical energy that plants and algae obtained from sunlight and then stored in sugars. Just as energy chemical energy is stored in sugars, chemical energy is stored in fossil fuels. All it takes to release it is enough heat and oxygen to cause the fuel to burn.
Fossil fuel power stations typically cost about $2.1 dollars per watt to build solar stations around $7 at present. The efficiency is increasing and costs are falling. This of course does not represent the cost to the consumer. In addition it does not take into account all the various other costs and the advantages and disadvantages of each. Fuel (fossil stations), poor sunlight (solar stations). Maintenance costs are similar for single plants but solar stations… Read More
No fossil fuel is clean but the least dirty fossil fuel is natural gas because it generates less carbon dioxide per kilogram of fuel.
Uranium is not a fossil fuel; only coal, oil and methane gas are fossil fuels.
Coal, methane gas, oil are fossil fuels; uranium is not a fossil fuel.
No. Fossil fuels are coal, oil and natural gas. Geothermal energy is a clean renewable energy powered by the heat from the centre of the earth. It is the only renewable energy whose power does not come from the sun.
It's not any kind of fuel at all. A fossil fuel comes from oil
The term "fossil fuels" refers to coal, oil, natural gas and their derivatives, which come from plant life. The dinosaurs themselves didn't contribute much to the fuel. The energy which is captured in hydrocarbons came originally from the Sun. One writer has rather poetically referred to fossil fuels as "ancient sunlight."
coal is a type of fossil fuel hahahhah i think
