Please do not do this again. This is a Science Forum, not a homework service.

1. What is an alternative fuel?

A legislated Enviro-whiner alternative to the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics.

2. Give three examples of alternative fuels.

Dried algae, sebum collected from teenage boys' faces, cerumen (e.g., "Schrek").

3. What is biomass?

Your aunt's big posterior.

4. Give three examples of biomass fuels.

Farts, dried dung, liposuctioned fat.

5. What are the four types of biomass that can be converted into alternative fuels?

Fat asses, hot air, harvested armpit hair, algae.

6. What is bioenergy?

Walk past a gym. See everybody sweating on the equipment? Had all that silliness been connected to electrical genertors, bioenergy would have been produced. You cannot connect electric eels in parallel series because PETA would have a hissy fit.

7. What is biodiesel fuel? What is it made from?

Bioodiesl fuel is bullshit. It is made from cooking oils and fats that are free if burned but evpensive if used as food.

8. What is ethanol? What is it made from?

Ethanol is booze. Ethanol is made by hydration of ethylene, from petroleum.

9. What is methanol? What is it made from?

Methanol is booze that will blind the drinker. It is made from syngas (hydrogen plus carbon monoxide) reacted over copper-doped zinc oxide catalyst, in turn from white-hot coal hit wtih steam.

10. How is biomass converted to ethanol?

It is allowed to rot.

And Uncle Al aces the exam as well as earning all the extra-credit points available! Well done, sir, good job!

I'm posting it on my wall for future reference as well as sending a copy to my friend the PhD Organic Chemist who is retired and turned schoolteacher.
