causes no greenhouse gases to be emitted after installation. 3. Disadvantages of this resource (include at least two) (4 pts) coal is not environmental friendly because it produces harmful byproducts and gas emissions such as sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide that causes pollution to the environment including acid rain Weather dependent Coal energy is nonrenewable energy source. Expensive 4. How does collecting this resource affect the environment? (8 pts) Whenever it is burned, gases are given off and particles of ash, called "fly ash," are released. The sulfur in coal combines with oxygen to form sulfur dioxide, which can be a major source of air pollution if emitted in large enough quantities. The solar panels used to collect the suns rays will take up a lot of space. About a whole football field or more. A large enough space to hold as many solar panels needed to make enough power for a whole city or town. 5. How does using this resource affect the environment? (4 pts) Air pollution from coal-fired power plants includes sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, particulate matter, and heavy metals, leading to smog, acid rain, toxins in the environment, and numerous respiratory, cardiovascular, and cerebrovascular effects. Land use and habitat loss, water use, and the use of hazardous materials in manufacturing — can vary greatly depending on the technology.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
