Fossil fuels

  1. 1. Fossil FuelsEduardo Tobias<br />
  2. 2. What are fossil fuels?<br />Fossil fuels are formed by the earths natural resources.<br />They are mostly found from dead organisms from millions of years ago.<br />Were created around the Carbonifeous period<br />
  3. 3. What are the different types of fossil fuels?<br />here are 3 major forms of Fossil Fuels. They are coal, oil, and natural gas<br />They were formed hundreds of millions years ago way before dinosaurs were around. <br />
  4. 4. How is coal formed?<br />Hard, black colored like rock Made up of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and amounts of sulfur.<br />Formed from the remains of vegetation that grew about 400 million years ago. Also formed when much of the Earth was covered by steamy swamps.<br />Three major coal formations: Anthracite, Bituminous, and Lignite <br />
  5. 5. Different stages of coal formation<br />Different stages of coal formation Lignite- Lowest rank for its heat energy producing capability.<br />Deposit the most the lowest intensity of heat and pressure.<br />Sub Bituminous- Higher carbon content and make up majority of coal in the U.S. Bituminous- Estimation of 100 to 300 million years old.<br />Used for energy in power plants. <br />Anthracite- High carbon content, cleanest burning coal but is very rare.<br />
  6. 6. How is coal used as a fossil fuel?<br />Coal helps produce electricity.<br />Helps build homes, start fires, heats homes, and help produces iron and steel.<br />
  7. 7. How is oil formed?<br />Oil is used as a fossil fuel because it gives out energy and is a big part to our environment today<br />It is used for things such as cars, paint, and even clothing. <br />
  8. 8. How is natural gas formed?<br />The main ingredient in natural gas is methane, a gas composed of one carbon atom and four hydrogen atoms.<br />It also came from animals and plants decayed millions of years ago.<br />
  9. 9. How is natural gas used as a fossil fuel?<br />Used for cooking, washing, drying, and even air conditioning. <br />
  10. 10. What are refineries and why are the important for fossil fuels?<br />An industrial plant used for purifying the substances.<br />Its important because fossil fuels are obtained through this. <br />
  11. 11. Exxon Valdez<br />he Exxon Valdezoil spill was one of the most publicized and studied environmental tragedies in history 10.8 million oil tanks were spilled.<br />Animals died and many wildfires were created. <br />
