2. Respond to these questions.

1. Question: What are nonrenewable energy sources?


Answer: comes from sources that will run out or will not be replenished
in our lifetimes, comes from mostly fossil fuels
2. Question: What are renewable energy sources?
Answer: energy generated from natural resources such as sunlight,
wind, rain, tides and geothermal heat which are renewable

3. Write the definition of The Great Energy Hunt Technical Terms

Green Energy - comes from natural sources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides,
plants, algae and geothermal heat.
Non-Renewable comes from sources that will run out or will not be replenished in
Energy - our lifetimes, comes from mostly fossil fuels
Renewable Energy - energy generated from natural resources such as sunlight, wind,
rain, tides and geothermal heat which are renewable
Coal - dense sedimentary rock, usually black, often with well-defined
bands of bright and dull material and a nonrenewable energy so
Natural Gas - Natural Gas is a gaseous mixture of hydrocarbon compounds,
the primary one being methane.
Petroleum Energy - Petroleum is gasoline, diesel fuel, and propane. Most gasoline is
made from crude oil, formed from remains of plants and
animals. Non Renewable
Petroleum - hydrocarbon mixtures. Included are crude oil, lease condensate,
unfinished oils, refined products obtained from the processing of
crude oil, and natural gas plant liquids.
Propane (C3H8) - A normally gaseous straight-chain hydrocarbon. It is a colorless
paraffinic gas that boils at a temperature of -43.67 degrees
Fahrenheit. It is extracted from natural gas or refinery gas
streams.
Biomass Biomass is plant matter and animal waste that can be harvested
to create bio-energy in the form of electricity, heat, steam and
fuels.
Ethanol (CH3-CH2OH) a clear, colorless, flammable oxygenated hydrocarbon. Ethanol
- is typically produced chemically from ethylene, or biologically
from fermentation of various sugars from carbohydrates found in
agricultural crops and cellulosic residues from crops or wood.
Renewable
Ethanol It is used in the United States as a gasoline octane enhancer and
oxygenate (blended up to 10 percent concentration). Ethanol
can also be used in high concentrations (E85) in vehicles
designed for its use. Renewable
Geothermal Energy Geothermal Energy is a form of renewable energy derived from
heat deep in the earths crust. Renewable
Hydroelectric Power Hydroelectric Power is a renewable energy source. It produces
the most electricity in the United States. It accounts for 6% of
total U.S. electricity generation and 67% of generation from
renewables in 2008. Renewable
Hydrogen Hydrogen is the lightest of all gases, occurring chiefly in
combination with oxygen in water; exists also in acids, bases,
alcohols, petroleum, and other hydrocarbons. Renewable
Solar Energy Solar Energy is the radiant energy of the sun, which can be
converted into other forms of energy, such as heat or electricity.
Nonrenewable
Wind Energy - Wind Energy is kinetic energy present in wind motion that can
be converted to mechanical energy for driving pumps, mills, and
electric power generators.
