  • 259 14 0 C Hydrogen Gas
    609 words
    Hydrogen Hydrogen is a tasteless, odorless, colorless gas. Hydrogen is found in group 1 and period 1 on the periodic table. Hydrogen is classified as a nonmetal on the periodic table. The symbol for hydrogen is represented by an H, its atomic number is 1, and its atomic weight is 1.0079. The hydrogen atom consists of one proton, which has a positive charge, and one electron, which has a negative charge. The term hydrogen comes from two Greek words meaning water-former. Henry Cavendish, an Englis...
  • First Use Of Hydrogen As A Fuel
    1,043 words
    It is no secret that the Gulf war was fought for superiority of the vast oil reserves in the Arab regions. This point to the fact that the superpowers are experiencing a severe shortage of fuel for its un-satiated energy needs. While the advanced nations in the world are the biggest consumers of fuel, their fuel production capacities are very limited or almost non-existent. Scientists predict that the world's oil reserves will not last for long and we need to find out alternative forms of fuel f...
  • Hydrogen As An Alternative Source Of Energy
    377 words
    The first and foremost element on the periodic chart is well known throughout the world. It makes up the greater portion of the earths atmosphere. It was discovered by Cavendish in seventeen seventy-six. It all started with his discovery which has led to future events. I am referring to the substance we all know as hydrogen. In nineteen thirty-seven, the Germans had used hydrogen in the Hindenburg, which in turn after the disaster has scared many into thinking that hydrogen is a very dangerous s...
  • Source For Clean Hydrogen For Fuel Cells
    1,056 words
    Reclaiming Clean Energy from Wastewater As the Earth becomes more developed many changes in the environment are becoming apparent. These changes are unexpected and often faced with opposition from skeptics. One of these problems is global warming. Global warming is caused by the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Greenhouse gases are produced on a large scale by combustion of fossil fuels. A major contributor to greenhouse emissions is the combustion of coal, oil, and gas in power ...
  • Petroleum To An Alternative Energy Like Hydrogen
    1,297 words
    Hydrogen: The Fuel of The Future By: JsonWhy are we as Americans so afraid to change? even if it is a change for the better? the world has been using oil coal and other petroleum products to power just about everything that moves for the last 150 years. yet most cars in the united states only get 10-20 miles a gallon and even the 'good' ones can get only a petty 20-50 miles a gallon. so why do we put up with the inefficiency when there are far better alternatives out there? Such as hydrogen, whi...
  • Hydrogen As The Only Fuel
    2,784 words
    Since the beginning of the scientific revolution in the early nineties the mankind looks for an energy source that is clean and renewable; solution of this problem would be probably the most common thing in our life - WATER. Water consists of two chemical elements, hydrogen and oxygen. Each molecule of water consists of two hydrogen (H 2) atoms and one oxygen (O) atom. Chemical binding between these three atoms is very stable and strong. Therefore, the reaction of hydrogen and oxygen is under no...
  • Hydrogen As An Alternative Fuel Source
    731 words
    As you know, gas prices are going up. Nobody likes paying more money for gas and yet nobody is willing to do anything about it. Now that we are at war with the Middle East (the main gasoline providers) the gas prices are going to keep going up. Some people (like foreign ambassadors) say that trade with the Middle East is good for there economy, but I for one don't like being dependant on foreign oil. That is where hydrogen fuel cells come into the picture. Rather than depending on a foreign coun...
  • Fuel Cell And Electric Solar Powered Cars
    994 words
    Imagine filling your tank with a garden hose, driving 5000 kilometers, and then stopping for a drink out of your tailpipe! This, ladies and gentlemen, is the future. But how is this possible With a device called a 'fuel cell'. These cells run primarily off of water, but can run from many different fluids including methanol, gasoline, and deisel in a pinch. How do these fuel cells work, and what impact will they have on the future In this century we have seen huge technological breakthroughs, thi...
  • Hydrogen As An Energy Source
    1,680 words
    Hydrogen: The Energy Source of the Future There have been many stories in the newspapers, on TV and on the radio about the state that our planet is in, and most of the time they are not too positive. We hear about pollution, and global warming most frequently, which are both caused mainly by the burning of fossil fuels. Because of this, organizations and governments have started to invest money in researching alternate forms of energy that are less polluting and that do not contribute to global ...
  • Hydrogen And Fuel Cells
    1,059 words
    FOSSIL FUELS: CONSEQUENCES AND CHOICES 'Fossil fuels will be all but consumed by the end of this century, leaving in its wake major climate, economic and social change as well as irrevocable damage to the environment', (Back strom, 2002). Hydrogen and fuel cells have the potential to solve several major challenges facing Australia today: dependence on petroleum imports, poor air quality, and greenhouse gas emissions. I am going to argue that Australia is currently failing to take the necessary s...
  • Hydrogen For The Fuel Cell
    3,689 words
    1. NEED FOR FUEL CELLS After a century of constant improvements, the internal combustion engine still only converts on average about 16 percent of the energy in gasoline to turn the car's wheels. All heat engines have efficiencies limited by the Carnot Cycle. The theoretical thermodynamic derivation of the Carnot Cycle shows that even under ideal conditions, a heat engine, used to power a vehicle or generator, cannot convert all the heat energy supplied to it into mechanical energy. Some of the ...
  • Advancements In The Fuel Tanks For Hydrogen
    1,356 words
    Introduction This report covers the new advancement in alternative fuels, specifically hydrogen power, and is intended for the general public as it affects everyone in the world. We, as a whole, have become more aware of the ever-increasing problem of pollution and its effect on the environment in the past two decades. We are noticing such effects as global warming, the green house effect, acid rain, and the depletion of natural resources utilized as sources of energy; thus, we have become more ...
  • Legitimate Alternative Source Of Fuel For Cars
    2,076 words
    Lines and lines of pumps decorate the elaborate design of a gas station in the year 2030. As a new customer coasts up to the filling station, he notices that in addition to the usual 20th century choices – regular, super, and premium gasoline – there are four additional choices: ethanol, natural gas, hydrogen, and even electricity? No, this isn t a page from a futuristic comic book, but instead an accurate prediction of what a gas station might look like in 30 years. Pollution is an ...
  • Use Of Ethanol Fuels
    4,521 words
    Alternative Fuel Vehicles You Can Buy Today From the earliest days of the automotive industry alternative fuels have always competed with petroleum for powering vehicles. Nicholas Cug not made the first self-powered road vehicle in 1769 with a steam engine, and the first gasoline automobile didn't appear until over 100 years later from Karl Benz. Through the late 19th and early 20th century steam and electric power remained strong contenders. The invention of the self-starter for gasoline engine...
