What are the advantages and disadvantages of using coal as a fuel?
1. coal is cheap to buy( not all but some varieties)
2. it serves as a fuel in industries and hence is very important
3. it can be used to generate electricity
4.powdered coal has been liquified by using hydrogen under high pressure. this liquid coal is mainly used to power ships
5.it can be used as a good reducing agent (for producing iron and steel)
6.it burns without smoke.
1. it is non-renewable resource
2. it emits harmful gases (mostly carbon dioxide (CO2)) which cause both pollution and global warming
3.it is a bad conductor of heat and electricity
4. one of the gas emitted is carbon monooxide. This is highly poisonous and even 1% of it consumed can cause death
5.it takes thousands of years to form
6. it cannot be recycled
The advantages of using hydrogen fuel cells are that they are an alternative fuel to fossil fuels, like coal, oil and gas. Also, burning or reacting hydrogen with oxygen runs electric motors and it's only emission is water vapour. The disadvantages of using hydrogen fuel cells is that hydrogen does not occur naturally on Earth and thus is not an energy source. It takes a great deal of energy to extract Hydrogen from water.

Coal is not a suitable automotive fuel as: It is not compatible with internal combustion engines Requires complex handling and combustion systems Produces solid waste Has no distribution system at the user level Contains sulfur compounds Emits radiation Requires continuous firing - no off on on capacity
The advantages and disadvantages all type of power generation system based on the factors cost and fuel availability?
Hydroelectric energy has both advantages and disadvantages. I am not sure whether the advantages normally outweigh the disadvantages, or vice versa. Advantage: Less fossil fuel is used. Disadvantage: The creation of dams often is disruptive to the environment. Hydroelectric energy has both advantages and disadvantages.
