Fossil power 2012
Presentation 5th October 2012
HOW DOES IT WORK??
Fossil fuels are oxidized through the application of heat, which acts as a catalyst to the exothermic chemical reaction known as combustion. When a fossil fuel is placed in a heated environment, its molecules are excited to the point that they burn, which is the severing of the electrical bonds between the hydrogen and carbon atoms. The hydrocarbon reacts with the oxygen in the air during combustion, forming water vapor (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2). If not enough heat is applied to the combustion, then the result is a lot of free carbon molecules in the form of soot. High-heat environments provide ample energy to allow the breaking of hydrocarbons into water and carbon dioxide in larger amounts
Hello my name is Joan
How much electricity is generated in one plant?
the col produce the 44.9 % energy in the world and the petrol 1.0 % energy in the world it produces in a day 350 MW
Is it renewable?
The fosil power is not renewal becaus you can only burn it once to produce heat and drive turbines of the fosil power plant

fossil power ADVANTAGES & DISADVANTAGES There are advantage and disadvantages on all powers. I will name the advantages first. there are advantage and disadvantages on all powers. So also on fossil power. It is possible to make a large amount of power in one fabric, just by using coal. The fabrics are very efficient and the fabrics can be built on many places. The transport of some fuels, for example gas or oil, is very easy. This are some very big advantages. However, there are also very big disadvantages. The biggest disadvantage is that the burning process, is very bad for the environment. That's because the process produce much carbon dioxide which contributes to the warming of the Earth. Also named as the "Greenhouse-effect". To try to stop the warming, people look for another source for energy. like sun power or wind power. These powers are also better that Fossil fuels because they never run out. One day, fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas, run out, then there is no more. I agree with this--L.Doolaard (talk) 16:53, 2 October 2012 (CEST)
