The term pulverized coal is best defined as:
- Coal that doesn’t burns at all
- Coal which bums for a long time
- Coal that is broken down into fine particles
- Coal that is free from ash contents
Correct answer: 3. Coal that is broken down into fine particles
In a coal power station, the pulverized coal (coal that is crushed into small fine pieces) is used. Coal is pulverized in order to increase its surface exposure which in turn promotes rapid combustion without using a large quantity of coal for generating power.
