o What is coal? o How do we use its energy? o What are the benefits of coal? o What about the disadvantages of coal? o How about the trends of coal? Introduction
o a combustible black or dark brown rock consisting mainly of carbonized plant. o Coal is a type of fossil fuel which is what we put in cars. What is Coal
o You first mine it out of the ground. o Then you burn it to make electricity. o Or it can be burned to make heat or to cook. How is it harnessed?
o Makes more energy than any other way combined. o Helped make 2.4 million metric tons of steel. o Powers 10 times the population of the us. Benefits
o Coal miners can die just from a small spark in the mines o Burning coal also does not help our environment. o It increases the change of global warming. Disadvantages
o The U.S. by consistant over the years others has used more. Trends in this resource
We think we think that coal is a good resource if we use it right. We say this because it can be bad for us. Conclusion
Fossil fuels Section 1.
Coal. What is coal? Most abundant fossil fuel in the world Enough coal reserves to last 200 years Dark sedimentary or metamorphic combustible rock made.
Combustion & Fossil Fuels Chapter Combustion (1.11) In combustion, a substance reacts rapidly with oxygen and releases energy. The energy may be.
The Staple of the Industrial Revolution. Lignite Coal: also known as brown coal, is a sedimentary rock and consists of about percent carbon Bituminous.

The importance of fossil fuels and the challenges facing their use
By: Kristen Reeves. Is a chemical element that is good conductor of both electricity and heat and forms cations and ionic bonds with non- metals.
It is used to make gasoline ad some other things to run a lot of our cars and other important things.
The sun is the major source of energy for the earth.
SOURCES OF ENERGY 1 Adapted from Ms. Ashby:
Fossil Fuels & Electricity. Electricity as a resource Electricity is created by the flow of electrons. (Most) Power plants use electric generators powered.
