what are the disadvantages of nonrenewable resources?

It takes a million years to form nonrenewable resources. and the world cam run out of it.and if it does run out we have to white a long time to make more of it. 95% of the worlds energy is nonrenewable.


fossil fuels. will run out. and will damage wildlife habitats.


nuclear energy. it is expensive to build,accidents can resulit in dangerous leaks of radiation.

what are the advantages of nonrenewable resources?

it is easer to move or travail nonrenewable resources then it is to travail renewable resources. and nonrenewable resources does not not disturb animals or nature.


fossil fuels. easy to transport and cheaper to use.


nuclear energy. does not produce air pollution.

What energy resources are nonrenewable and renewable?

Biomass is organic matter used as a fuel. Geothermal is thermal energy generated and stored in the earth. Hydropower is power derived from the energy of falling water and running water. Solar is radiant energy emitted by the sun. wind is the form of windmills that has been used for centuries for such tasks. Petroleum is a liquid mixture of hydrocarbons in certain rock strata. Natural gas is flammable gas, consisting largely of methane and other hydrocarbons. Coal is a combustile black or dark brown rock consisting mainly of carbonized plant matter. Propane is a flammable hydrocarbon gas of the alkane series. Uranium is the chemical element of atomic number 92, a gray, dense radioactive metal used as a fuel in nuclear reactors.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of renewable resources?

ADVANTAGES:

  • We never run out of renewable resources
  • Requires less maintenance for traditional generators
  • Costs less money
  • Produces little or no waste
DISADVANTAGES

  • Difficult to generate
  • Have to build more energy facilities
  • Supply relies on weather

What is a short description of biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, wind, petroleum, natural gas, coal, propane, and uranium?

Biomass is organic matter used as a fuel, Geothermal energy is the heat from the earth. Hydropower is a renewable energy contained in flowing water. Solar is radiant energy emitted by the sun. Geothermal is thermal energy generated and stored in the Earth. Hydropower is power derived rom the energy of falling water and running water. Wind is the form of windmills that has been used for centuries for such tasks. Petroleum is a liquid mixture of hydrocarbons in certain rock strata. Natural gas is flammable gas, consisting largely of methane and other hydrocarbons. Coal is a combustile black or dark brown rock consisting mainly of carbonized plant matter. Propane is a flammable hydrocarbon gas of the alkane series. Uranium is the chemical element of atomic number 92, a gray, dense radioactive metal used as a fuel in nuclear reactors.

What are some ways to conserve energy?

Energy- Only use lights when needed.


Water-Check toilet, sinks, and pipes for leeks.


Recycling-Provdes less waste.

How does solar power conserve energy? What are some good things about solar energy?

It generates electricity without having to pay as much money monthly. Solar panels generates just as much energy. Solar energy is renewable. Little or no maintnence for solar energy.

Five ways to conserve energy in our school!

1: Turn off lights when leave room.

2: Turn off water when not using it.

3: Unplug chargers when not being used.

4: Turn off technology when not needed, so that way you won't to use chargers as frequently.

5: Charge devices at home.

Energy Sources

Geothermal- Heated wear that comes from the grounds.

Hydropower-Energy that comes from water dams.

Solar- Energy that comes from the sun.

Biomass- Energy sources that come from dead and decayed animals and plants.

Natural gas- A fossil fuel formed when layers of buried plants.

Coal- Form from decomposition

Petroleum- Mixed liquid of hydrocarbons that is present in certain rock
