Best Answer

The sun is the source of the energy found in coal.

Plants get energy from the sun through photosynthesis, which drives the chemical reactions that let plants grow and store food. Swamp plants that died millions of years ago were covered over and eventually came under tremendous pressure by being buried under the surface of the earth. This pressure slowly converted them from recognizable plant remains to what we recognize as coal.

How sun is ultimate source of energy source for coal?

We are pretty sure that coal formed from layers of plant matter accumulating at the bottom of a body of water, then being deeply buried under sediment and rock and eventually compressed and transformed by the heat and pressure into coal. The plants that eventually became coal derived their energy from the sun while they were living - just as plants do now - so the sun is the original source of the energy you get from coal.
