\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nA variety of answers can be given for this question. Caramel is a combination of caramelized sugar and heavy cream ,which would label it a French invention in some eyes. Being that France is world renowned for its desserts(as well as it's amazing food), I would bet o…n France. Also did you know if you simmer a can of evaporated milk long enough it will turn into a great caramel you can pour into a graham cracker crust?\n. \nActually, I believe that answer should read condensed milk (which has sugar in it) as opposed to evaporated milk (which has no sugar).

Coal is obtained by strip mining which removes all soil above a coal deposit. The soil is replaced but it takes many years for the ecosystem to recover and there are four ranks of coal which are: . lignite . sub-bituminous . bituminous . anthracite
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 bu…ried under the surface of the earth. This pressure slowly converted them from recognizable plant remains to what we recognize as coal. ( Full Answer )

Plants and animals that lived in the ancient, geological past and have become buried in the Earth's rocks as they were deposited.
Coal begins as dead plant material (trees, ferns, leaves-- typically) which fall into oxygen depleted waters in low energy swamp or swamp-like setting. The oxygen depleted water prevents the total decay of the plant material which is compacted and lithified by the addition of subsequent deposits or …deposition of other sediments.

i am not 100% sure but here is what i do know for sure.* salmon are very common in alaska.* they generally live in the north and arctic waters where it is chilly.* salmon live in rivers a lot and they like cold water.i would guess that they come from the north.
Coal originated from ancient plants that flourished in swamp-like environments millions of years ago. In Virginia, coal was formed mainly during the Carboniferous period of the Earth's history, 280 to 360 million years ago. There are also coalbeds in Virginia that were formed during the Triassic p…eriod, 205 to 245 million years ago. By comparison, most of the coals in the western U.S. were formed during the Cretaceous period, 70 to 140 million years ago, and the Tertiary period, 2 to 70 million years ago. ( Full Answer )
The original people living in what we know as Mexico are considered "native", and they migrated from the Eastern Asia area across land, and also from islands in the Pacific Ocean. Anthropologists are still theorizing, and discovering, more evidence on the many people who visited and lived in Mexico …before the Spanish came to conquer. If you're asking about the Spanish conquests of the above natives in the late 1400s and early 1500s, most of these people were born in Spain, some in Portugal, and others from Islands and other countries that Spain had recently conquered. The Italian, Christopher Columbus had sought money and ships from the Queen of Spain to voyage to the East and find an ocean route to the West Indies. His own government in Italy was not interested in his idea. So Spain provided Columbus with everything he needed to take a 2 month journey across the ocean, and the sailors and soldiers were Spanish for the most part. Columbus didn't really know what he was going to find because no one from Europe had sailed in this direction before. Columbus found land in the Gulf of Mexico, on one of the Caribbean Islands and from there, eventually after more trips, made his way to Mexico. Because Spain had financed his voyages, the land was "claimed" by Spain. Understand please, that by the late 1700s, many folks from other European countries, like France & Germany, also came to settle there. And once Mexico won independence from Spain in the 1820s, many more people from other than Spain were welcomed and lived there. ( Full Answer )
It is impossible to say where the very first wasps came from. The oldest fossilised wasp found so far is about 115 million years old, and it is thought they date back before the advent of the angiosperms, or flowering plants, some 120 million years ago. Bees evolved from wasps to feed from the nec…tar of these flowers, and the oldest bee fossil found so far is a bee body preserved in amber, and dated to about 100 million years ago. ( Full Answer )

Most of it is from the trees of the great forests of 200 million years ago.
There are three major forms of fossil fuels , Coal, Oil and natural gas. All three were formed many hundreds of millions of years ago before the time of the dinosaurs - hence the name fossil fuels. The age they were formed is called the Carboniferous period. It was part of the Paleozoic Era. Carboni…ferous gets its name from carbon, the basic element in coal and other fossil fuels.. The carboniferous period occurred from about 360 to 286 million years ago. At the time, the land was covered with swamps filled with huge trees, ferns and other large leafy plants. The water and seas were filled with algae - the green stuff that forms on a stagnant pool of water. Algae is actually millions of very small plants. Some deposits of coal can be found during the time of the dinosaurs. As the trees and plants died, they sank to the bottom of the swamps of oceans. They formed layers of spongy material called peat. Over many hundreds of years, the peat was covered by sand and clay and other minerals, which turned into a type of rock called sedimentary.. More and More rock piled on top of more rock, ( Full Answer )
coal in depth of earth formed by trees which were buried over thousands of years ago may be due to some natural disaster , and as we know earth depth is warm , and trees converted to coal .
Coal is obviously a fossil fuel; it is believed to have formed from te fossilised remains from animals and plants from the Carboniferous Period.
Scientists believe that during the Carboniferous period (280 to 345 million years ago) large amounts of plant life and other organic matter grew in the swampy areas and lagoons that covered much of the earth. As the plants and other life forms died, they drifted down to the bottom of the swamps, slo…wly decomposed, and formed Peat - a soggy, sponge like material. The peat became buried and compressed under the earth's surfaces over a long period of time. Over millions of years and through the forces of heat and pressure, the compressed peat became coal. The greater the heat and pressure, the harder the coal was that formed. (Source: http://www.teachcoal.org/aboutcoal/articles/faqs.html) One of the largest coal reserves in the United States is in Northern Pennsylvania. You can also find many active coal mines is West Virginia as well. The United States has the largest world reserve of Coal, While China is the largest extractor of Coal. ( Full Answer )
i think its from the energy stored by plants that lived hundreds of millions of years ago.=]
Coal energy comes from the sun. The coal is fossilized vegetation that grew in the sunshine eons ago. The vegetation took up the solar energy using photosynthesis and chlorophyll to produce green matter
bugers and poop - whoever wrote this needs to grow up! Coal comes from factories and you can make coal from fossil fuels.
One tradition you often hear of in the United States is "if you are not good, you will get coal in your stocking". Well, this actually stems from the tradition of La Befana. On the night that Jesus was born, the 2 Wise Men had stopped by her house to ask for directions, afterward they had asked her …to join them, but she refused. Later on, a shepherd stopped by to ask her for directions as well, and then also asked her to join him to come pay respects to the baby Jesus, but she refused again. Later that night, she saw a great bright star in the sky and then reconsidered going to look for the stable where Jesus was. She had collected some toys of her own child that had died, to give to the baby Jesus. But, she could not find . the stable. So to this day, she goes around looking for Jesus and leaves toys for the good children, and coal for the bad ones. Carbone Dolce is often used as the traditional joke in Italy, its rock candy that looks almost exactly like coal. ( Full Answer )
Carbon dioxide, oxides of sulphur, oxides of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, unburned hydrocarbons, and quite a few others.
Coal is an organic sedimentary rock because it is derived largely from the remains of plants.
1653, probably a back-formation of origination (1647), from M.Fr. origination, from L. originationem (nom. originatio), from originem (see original). In first ref. it meant "to trace the origin of;" meaning "to bring into existence" is from 1657; intrans. sense of "to come into existence" is from 17…75. ( Full Answer )
While of biochemical origin, coal is not considered an igneous rock, but rather a sedimentary one, due to its process of formation wherein dead and decaying organic matter (such as animal and plant matter, typing being found in bogs or swamps) was compressed into rock form over a period of several h…undred million years. ( Full Answer )
Most of the Carbon in both coals and oils come from Flora andFauna, i.e animals and plants. Over thousands of years the naturalcarbon from the lifeforms (usually from wet areas like swamps orshallow marine areas) are compressed, recieving a tonne ofpressure, until eventually becoming coal seams that… we see today.

We usually think out of 100 percent when we think percent, but out of 150 percent 32% comes from burning coal.
You could argue that the sun has provided all the energy for theorganic materials that coal consists of. Or even the compressionand heat that coal suffered from during its formation ( As a springthat becomes compressed gaining potential energy )
coal is fuel. it can be burned to make heat or energy. the energy is coal was once sunlight energy that plants used. Petroleum and natural gas are also fuels. most scientists think natural gas petroleum form in a way similar to coal. however, they did not begin as plants. they began as small sea org…anisms. so, crude oil and natural gas are called fossil fuels. ( Full Answer )
the energy that is released when coal was at one time sunlight energy shining on plants.
It comes, as a result of evaporation from ocean,seas,river and transpiration from plant,which form cloud and with time their is rainfall which are available for drinking
To the best of my understanding, "Heaping coals upon their head" deals with the act of actually passing cinders into a basket of sorts- giving someone heat. This practice continues to this day in various parts of the world, the means of transporting may vary but the pricipal is still the same. Th…e importance of this may be overlooked in today's generation where we have indoor, insulated, heated HOT-TUBS and CARS let alone houses. We simply turn a dial and have fire for cooking. We adjust a knob and have warm water for tea or showers. Obviously, two thousand years ago, this ability did not exist. Fire was critical and in this context it is easy to see how 'Heaping hot coals upon your enemy's head' would be a tremendous blessing in the winter or anytime when it came to preparing food. Of Course, the various interpretations concerning pangs of guilt, etc. still exist but this is more closely related to the physical meaning. Given that understanding the passage makes perfect sense on the surface and also has deeper significance. ( Full Answer )
Plants use sunlight or electromagnetic energy and converts it to glucose, animals eat plants converting it to chemical(protein) which we eat.
it comes fom the nutrients in the soil- the sun gives the soil nutrients producing energy for the plant.
English: habitational name from any of the numerous places in northern and eastern England called Ashby, from Old Norse askr 'ash' or the Old Norse personal name Aski + bÃ½r 'farm'.
The sun. Oil is the product of decayed matter. The matter was originally plant and animal life which was supported by the sun's radiation.

SOUMYADIP PAL, ST.XAVIER'S HIGH SCHOOL, HALDIA , EAST MIDNAPORE,WEST BENGAL,(INDIA) (CLASS--8A/3) ;- Because of sun the natural disasters are occurring and before 10000000 years from now, many plants and trees got buried and thus due to the long natural occurrences such as, decomposing and compost…ing due to the action of bacteria and funguses resulting in the formation of coal. Another fact is that, due to the hot and direct rays of the sun, low and high pressures are created alternatively and in this way, wind is formed. hence, this is caused due to the presence of the original source of nature and that is :-sun ((for any extra suggestions, please email to:- email@example.com )). ( Full Answer )
The source of the energy in coal and wind can ultimately be traced to the Sun. Coal is the compressed remains of vegetation that grew millions of years ago, so that was produced by the sun. Wind is part of our weather, and that is also driven by the sun.
Petrochemicals come from petroleum -Oil. However, some chemicals extracted from petroleum (petrochemicals) , may also be extracted form coal.
coal is created by the deposition and compaction of huge plant(organic) material deposited into a basin,with the increasing depth the high rank of coal is formed. The order is:- peat>lignite>bituminous>anthracite Peat is formed at shallow depth and on moving downward anthracite is formed at greater …depth. ( Full Answer )
Not sure if this will answer your question, but I'll give it a shot. It's less about the fact that is is coal and more about the fact that coal gives off heat. When coal was first being used as a heat source, it was cheaper than wood and there was a lot of it. So really the origin of the energy is i…n the heat that the coal generates when on fire and less about the coal itself. ( Full Answer )
I do nothing with coal. Others burn it to release the contained energy through the process of combustion. The result of combustion is heat. The heat is then most often used to create steam. The steam is then used to spin a turbine, which creates electricity. So, in a nut shell, coal is electricity. … Santa Klaus also uses lumps of coal to send a clear message to naughty children (or so rumor has it). ( Full Answer )
Fossil Fuels are used to provide to energy to perform work. Such as using coal to provide energy for a train to work.
According to the US Institute for Energy Research, coal in 2005 was responsible for 26% of global energy production. This percentage is dropping each year as more countries and power plants move to oil and gas, the burning of which releases less harmful carbon dioxide emissions than coal. There is… movement too in the establishment of renewable energy power (solar, wind, water, hydro, tidal and wave, geothermal, ocean thermal, biomass and biofuel). ( Full Answer )
The idea of putting coal in a Christmas stocking is considered to have originated in Italy and though the tradition of hanging stockings is still carried on most people don't put coals in bad children's stockings anymore.
My nation is USA. Most of the coal comes from within the country. The US actually exports coal to other countries.
Anthracite forms from the metamorphism of bituminous coal. The metamorphism occurs due to pressures and temperatures from depth of burial or stresses derived from plate movements. .
As of 2011, about 42 percent of electricity in the US was derived from coal. There is a push in the 21st century to use other methods of electricity since coal is harmful to the environment.
As of 2013, the amount of the US's electricity that comes from coal is approximately 42% This makes up the mass majority of electricity service in the country. Natural gas is the second most popular source.
The energy in vegetation (beans) and coal (a fossil fuel fromanimals eating vegetation or eating other animals feeding onvegetation) ultimately comes from the sun.
