Due to rapid increasing in population human demands are also increases. So to satisfy various human requirements various forms of energy should properly utilizes up to its maximum level. But due to technological limitations is not so possible to utilization of whole available energy without any loss, which may violates the various laws of physics. Liquid or gaseous fuels are mainly taken in to consideration as it’s having high calorific value, low emission and consume less space to store.

Abstract


Due to rapid increasing in population human demands are also increases. So to satisfy various human requirements various forms of energy should properly utilizes up to its maximum level. But due to technological limitations is not so possible to utilization of whole available energy without any loss, which may violates the various laws of physics. Liquid or gaseous fuels are mainly taken in to consideration as it’s having high calorific value, low emission and consume less space to store.
