Energy and Fossil Fuels

Formation of Fossil Fuels
Some Examples of Fossil fuels are coal, patroleum, natual gas, and oil.

Some fuels that people use today are materials that were formed a hundred million years ago.The forest form a million years ago are thr source of coal today.
" When plants and animals die their remains pile up in think layers of swamp and marshes. Clay and sand sediments cover their remains. The resulting preasure and high temperature turn the reamains to coal"(Michael 166).
Energy from the Sun
Fossil fuels has energy that come from the sun.Fuel alone doesn't create energy. The sound is large source of the earth's process. "Withen the dense core of the sun during the process of nuclear fusion, nuclear energy is turned into electromagnetic energy"(Michael 167).
Using Fossil Fuel Energy
The chemical energy in fossil fuels comes from the sun.Million of years later, powerplants transfrom that chemical energy to the electrical energy that pwers your hai dryer (Michael 167)
The sun's Energy on Earth
When the sun's energy reaches earth certain living things like plants transfoarm its energy to chemical energy. Some of the energy is used and some is stored. When the plant dies the chemical energy stored is trapped and is found in coal today.
Uses of Fossil Fuel
The process of burning fuels is known as combustion. During Combustion the chemical energy is turned to thermal energy. This thermal energy can be used to heat water until is boils to produce steam. A turbine is like a fan, with blades attached to an axel. The Pressure of the steam on the blades causes the turbine to spin very fast. Fossil fuels by jakyle97
