Fossil Fuels & Renewable Energy Subject Area: Science, Social Science Unit Title: Natural Resources Grade Level: 4th & 5th grade Objectives: To list the differences between renewable and nonrenewable energy resources and their availabili- ty, emphasizing the growing difficulty of finding energy whose supply is decreasing.

Some fossil fuels, such as coal, are an abundant and cheap form of energy. Others, like oil, have a variable cost depending on geographic location. For this reason, geopolitical issues arise due to the geographic allocation of these highly valuable resources.

Fossil fuels are non-renewable resources, as they have taken millions of years to form. 3 Key Findings • The overall U.S. energy consumption decreased to quadrillion British thermal units (Btu) in —a % decline from Compared toenergy consumption remained at similar levels in for renewables (+%) and nuclear (+%), while consumption from natural gas (+%) and.

Fuel gas is any one of a number of fuels that are gaseous under ordinary conditions. Many fuel gases are composed of hydrocarbons (such as methane or propane), hydrogen, carbon monoxide, or mixtures gases are sources of potential heat energy or light energy that can be readily transmitted and distributed through pipes from the point of origin directly to the place of consumption.

Fuels and fuel chemistry. A fuel is any compound that has stored energy. This energy is captured in chemical bonds through processes such as photosynthesis and respiration. Energy is released during oxidation. The most common form of oxidation is the direct reaction of a fuel with oxygen through combustion.

Wood, gasoline, coal, and any number of other fuels have energy-rich chemical bonds. About this book.
