Fuel is a substance which, when burnt, i.e. on coming in contact and reacting with
oxygen or air, produces heat. Thus, the substances classified as fuel must necessarily
contain one or several of the combustible elements : carbon, hydrogen, sulphure, etc. In
the process of combustion, the chemical energy of fuel is converted into heat energy.
fuel may be classified in to ways-
according to physical state - solid ,liquid , gaseous fuel
according to mode of procurement – natural and manufactured.
Natural ------------------------------- manufactured
Oil shale coke
Coal tar etc
Natural Gas Coal gas,Producer gas,Water gas
Hydrogen,Acetylene,Oil gas etc
and different kind of Nuclear fuel
But the major problem is that populations is rising day by day and the demand of these fuel is also rising. but all these kind of fuel are limited. one day they will be finished due to irresponsible use of them. this is the big question in front of us. we can't imagine life without fuel. because it is the major part of our daily life. for transportation , electricity and food we need fuel. if the fuel will be finished our life become hell. so it is our responsibility to save fuel and we need to switch to alternative source of energy.
now we will discuss how we can save fuel.
1.switch off engine of your vehicle on red light.
2.use Public transport as much as possible.
3.use common transport to go at common destination.
4. Switch off all electric equipment when they are not in use.
5.use CFL instead of filament bulb.
6.Select the most energy-efficient appliances
7.Maintain proper type pressure to maximize your vehicle’s gas mileage.
now we will discuss about non conventional source of energy or Renewable energy
There are many kinds of renewable energy sources which can be used according to our climate or Convenience.
Solar Energy- Sun is a big source of energy. which can fulfill our energy requirement for life time. if we will be able to convert it in to desired form of energy. still we are using a few amount of solar energy with the help of solar Panel and solar cooker etc
bio Gas- In this type of energy resource, we use cow dung or kitchen waste to produce gas. which we can use in cooking.
wind energy- in this source of energy we use power of wind to produce energy. this is limited to climatic condition of your region.
contribute in energy saving, your little effort can make big difference
