The primary means of generating energy for human endeavors is the combustion of fuels. Fuels: Coal - burned in power plants Gasoline - burned in automobiles Natural gas - heating Heating oil – heating .Propane, charcoal, wood, candles, … Combustion (burning in air) releases the chemical energy stored in the chemical bonds of the fuels.
