The chief sources of energy available to man today are oil, natural gas, coal, water power and atomic energy. Coal, gas and oil represent energy that has been concentrated by the decay of organic materials (plants and animals=o`simlik va hayvonlar) accumulated in the geologic past.

These fuels are often referred to as fossil fuels.

The word 'fossil' (derived from the Latin' to dig up'= lotincha "qazish" so'zidan olingan.) originally referred to anything that was dug from the ground, particularly a min­eral.

Today the term 'fossil' generally means any direct evidence of past life, for example, the footprints of ancient animals.

Fossils are usually found in sedimentary rocks, although sometimes they may be found in igneous and metamorphic rocks as well. They are most abundant in mudstone, shale and limestone, but are also found in sandstone, do­lomite and conglomerate.

Most fuels are carbon-containing materials that are burned in air. In burning fuels give off heat which is used for different purposes.

Fuels may be solid, liquid and gaseous. Solid fuels may be divided into two main groups, natural and manufactured. The former category includes coal, wood, peat and other plant products.

The latter category includes coke and charcoal obtained by heating coal in the absence of air.


Bugungi kunda inson uchun mavjud bo'lgan asosiy energiya manbalari neft, tabiiy gaz, ko'mir, suv va atom energiyasidir. Ko'mir, gaz va neft geologik o'tmishda to'plangan organik moddalarning (o'simliklar va hayvonlar) parchalanishi natijasida to'plangan energiyani anglatadi.

Ushbu yoqilg'ilarni ko'pincha qazilma yoqilg'i deb atashadi.

"Fosil" so'zi (lotincha "qazish" so'zidan olingan yozuv.) Dastlab erga qazilgan har qanday narsaga, xususan mineralga nisbatan ishlatilgan.

Bugungi kunda "qazilma" atamasi umuman o'tmishdagi har qanday to'g'ridan-to'g'ri dalillarni, masalan, qadimgi hayvonlarning izlarini anglatadi.

Qazilmalar odatda cho'kindi jinslarda uchraydi, ammo ba'zida ular metamorfik va tog' jinslarida ham bo'lishi mumkin. Ular loy, slanets va ohaktoshga juda boy, ammo ular qumtosh, dolomit va konglomeratda ham mavjud.

Ko'pgina yoqilg'ilar havoda yoqib yuboriladigan uglerodli materiallardir. Yoqilg'i yoqilg'isida turli maqsadlarda ishlatiladigan issiqlikni o'chiring.

Yoqilg'i qattiq, suyuq va gazsimon bo'lishi mumkin. Qattiq yoqilg'ilarni tabiiy va ishlab chiqarilgan ikkita asosiy guruhga bo'lish mumkin. Avvalgi toifaga ko'mir, o'tin, torf va boshqa o'simlik mahsulotlari kiradi.

Ikkinchi toifaga havo yo'qligida ko'mirni isitish orqali olingan koks va ko'mir kiradi.
