Fuels and their Efficiency
in Producing Energy
We create heat energy by burning fuels. During the process of burning, chemical energy stored in fuels will be released in the form of heat. Since heat energy is what we are looking for, it is important to learn more about the amount of heat that we can get from different types of fuel. The amount of heat that you get from one pound of charcoal, probably is not the same as heat from one pound of natural gas or one pound of gasoline. Knowing what fuel will create more energy can help us to put value on different fuels.
 Project description
This experiment requires multiple experiments with different types of fuels. You need to measure the amount of heat energy produced with each fuel, record the results and plot a chart or graph.
