With a complete combustion or See 'nuclear fission'., approx. 8 kWh of heat can be generated from 1 kg of coal, approx. 12 kWh from 1 kg of mineral oil and around 24,000,000 kWh from 1 kg of uranium-235. Related to one kilogram, uranium-235 contains two to three million times the Ability to do work or diffuse heat. The unit of energy is th... equivalent of oil or coal.
