In this Unit we will cover: Hydrogen Fuel By: Sam and Tila
How Does Hydrogen Energy Work?
In hydrogen fuel they have cells, those hydrogen fuel cells opperates just like a battery it has 2 electrodes, anode and a cathode being separated by a membrane. Oxygen passes over one electrode and hydrogen over the other. Hydrogen starts to react to a catalyst on the electrode anode to the ccathode creating hydrogen gas into a negative charged and a positive charged ions. The hydrogen ions move through the electrode where they will cobine with oxygen and electrons to produce the water.
Where Does This Come From?
Hyrdogen fuel source is made from water and naural gas, a lot of scientist had been trying many ways to produce hydrogen for years even way before hydrogen was known as an element. But hydrogen was used to form with anything they needed it to be in theur desires, like hydrogen with nitrogen from the air to produce ammonia(NH3) going through a procces called Haber process. Robert Byle was the first to produce hydrogen gas as early as 1671 while still experimenting with ions and acid.
Energy Source Made From?
There is a lot of different ways to produce hydrogen fuel, such as electrolysis ( a method of using to direct electric currents to drive an otherwise non- spontaneus chemical reactions), but inside the electrolysis, electricity is run through water to separate the hydrogenand oxygen atoms.
