Describe how coal is formed from dead vegetation. What is this process called?
Millions of years ago, there were dense forests on earth in low lying areas
Due to floods, earthquakes, volcanoes, etc., the forest got buried in soil
As more and more soil deposited over them, they sank deeper
Due to high temperature and pressure inside the earth, and the due to no air inside the earth,
the dead plants and trees got slowly converted into coal
This process of conversion of dead plants and trees into Carbon is called Carbonization
