Resources [renewable and non renewable]

  1. 1. RESOURCES
  2. 2. TWO TYPES RESOURCES NON RENEWABLE AND RENEWABLE RESOURCES OF
  3. 3. NON RENEWABLE RESOURCES A nonrenewable resource is a natural resource that cannot be re-made or re-grown at a scale comparable to its consumption.
  4. 4. NUCLEAR ENERGY Nuclear fission uses uranium to create energy. Nuclear energy is a nonrenewable resource because once the uranium is used, it is gone!
  5. 5. Fossil Fuels Fossil fuels take millions of years to form. They are the product of the fossilized remains of dead plants and animals that have been exposed to the heat and pressure deep within the earth’s crust. There are many types of fossil fuels, such as petroleum (gasoline), natural gas, and coal.
  6. 6. COAL, PETROLEUM, AND GAS Coal, petroleum, and natural gas are considered nonrenewable because they can not be replenished in a short period of time. These are called Fossil fuels.
  7. 7. HOW IS COAL MADE ???
  8. 8. HOW ARE OIL AND GAS MADE ???
  9. 9. RENEWABLE RESOURCES Renewable resources are natural resources that can be replenished in a short period of time.
  10. 10. SOLAR The sun’s rays are used for energy by organisms that undergo photosynthesis. Nearly every organism on the planet gets energy through photosynthesis, directly or indirectly. There are also ways that people can utilize the energy that the sun provides.
  11. 11. GEOTHERMAL Geothermal energy is thermal energy generated and stored in the Earth. Earth's geothermal energy originates from the original formation of the planet, from volcanic activity, and from solar energy absorbed at the surface.
  12. 12. WIND Wind is caused by the uneven heating of the atmosphere. Some areas of the world, such as costal regions, have more wind than others because the terrain of the area is relatively flat and has few obstacles to block the wind from blowing. The wind blows naturally – it is not caused by human activity, and it cannot be used up.
  13. 13. BIOMASS Biomass, a renewable energy source, is biological material from living, or recently living organisms, such as wood, waste, (hydrogen) gas, and alcohol fuels. Biomass energy is derived from five distinct energy sources: garbage, wood, waste, landfill gases, and
  14. 14. HYDROELECTRIC Hydroelectricity is the term referring to electricity generated by hydropower ; the production of electrical power through the use of the gravitational force of falling or flowing water. It is the most widely used form of renewable energy.
