Both petroleum and coal are made up of complex carbon-based molecules, and both originated with living creatures of some kind. Both are vital sources of energy for the modern world and both were formed by geologic processes over millions of years. However, petroleum was mainly formed from the remains of ocean-dwelling microorganisms. Coal, on the other hand, originated from decayed vegetation in ancient swamps and bogs. In any case, it took millions of years for both coal and oil to be produced. This is the case because it took that much time for overlying sediments to produce the unimaginable heat and pressure that would one day allow us to harvest these energy resources. This passage uses a combination of comparison and contrast and A. examples and explanations. B. cause and effect. C. chronological order. D. supporting details.

Duration, tempo, intensity, scope, setting, and chronology are 6 basic attributes of time.Duration refers to how long something lasts; tempo refers to how many frames per second there are; intensity can either be high or low, depending on action; scope can be extensive or limited, also depending on how much action …

A fuel oil tank is an upright cylinder, buried so that its circular top is 14 feet beneath ground level. the tank has a radius of 5 feet and is 15 feet high, although the current oil level is only 14 feet deep. calculate the work required to pump all of the oil to the surface. oil weighs 50lb/ft350lb/ft3.

Say we have a cylinder that has a height of dx, we see that the cylinder has a volume of:  Vcylinder = πr^2*h = π(5)^2(dx) = 25π dx Then, the weight of oil in this cylinder is:  Fcylinder = 50 * Vcylinder = (50)(25π dx) = 1250π dx.  Then, since …

There is a public debate between the three candidates for the U.S. Senate. During the debate, the topics of oil and energy are addressed. Each candidate expressed their view on the issue: Edgar Eisenhower: “We need to cut our dependence on foreign oil. Instead, let’s use the natural world around us. Think about the sun, wind, water, the heat of the earth, and the crops in our fields. These will make for affordable energy in the 21st century. We should fund research in those areas. Let us also increase tax credits for private investment in clean, renewable sources of energy.” Rebecca Roosevelt: “We need to cut our dependence on foreign oil and develop a national energy strategy. We should provide tax incentives for producing energy in the U.S. Let’s increase U.S. supplies of coal, oil, and natural gas. We should promote environmentally responsible exploration and development of oil and gas reserves. That includes federal land like Alaska’s National Wildlife Refuge. Let’s also advance clean coal technology.” Terrance Taft: “Looking at our energy supply is one thing—how we’re using it is another. We can drive smaller, more fuel efficient cars. We can invest in more efficient technology for our homes and businesses. These things add up and make a big difference. In fact, in several new buildings associated with Taft Inc., we address our energy needs with locally produced renewable energy. That wouldn’t be possible if we were using outdated, energy guzzling technology.” Often politicians will agree that something is a priority, but have very different recommendations on how to best address it. What would be the best example of this from the previous section? 1. Both Terrance Taft and Edgar Eisenhower agree that inefficiency is bad, but disagree on how to make things more efficient. 2. Both Rebecca Roosevelt and Edgar Eisenhower agree that we need to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, but disagree on the best way of doing so. 3. Both Terrance Taft and Rebecca Roosevelt agree that alternative energy is important, but disagree about which form would be the best to invest in. 4. Both Rebecca Roosevelt and Terrance Taft agree that developing alternative energy sources is important, but differ on the best way of doing so.
