  • Hydrogen Gas In The Hindenburg
    693 words
    The Hindenburg was a luxury airship, from nazi Germany. This 'Titanic of the skies' (no pun intended) was destroyed by a flash fire in 1937 while landing in New Jersey after making its 10th transatlantic crossing. Thirty-five of the 97 people aboard and one ground crew member were killed when the blimp burst into flames and was rapidly consumed by the fire. The Hindenburg was filled with hydrogen gas which is lighter than air. The gas was stored in sixteen large gas cells inside the ship. Like a...
  • 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...
  • Ch 2 N 2 Alkanes
    401 words
    Alkanes The alkanes are the simplest form of organic compounds. They are made up of only Carbon atoms and Hydrogen atoms. All of the bonds are single and the number of hydrogen atoms versus carbon atoms follows this formula: Ch 2 n+2 Alkanes are all non-polar molecules so they aren't soluble in water. Here are some more facts. -Referred to as 'Saturated' -They have-low densities-low melting points-low boiling points -Refer to 'Slide 29's heat We couldn't find any information on who discovered th...
  • Atom Of Ordinary Hydrogen
    871 words
    HYDROGEN Hydrogen is a gaseous element, symbol H, usually classed in group 1 (or Ia) of the periodic table Hydrogen melts at -259.2^0 C (-434.56^0 F) and boils at -252.77^0 C (-422.986^0 F). Hydrogen was confused with other gases until the British chemist Henry Cavendish demonstrated in 1766 that it was evolved by the action of sulfuric acid on metals and also showed at a later date that it was an independent substance that combined with oxygen to form water. The British chemist Joseph Priestley...
  • 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...
  • Theory H 2 Gas
    277 words
    Preparation of hydrogen PURPOSE- 1) To produce H 2 gas from a compound. 2) Capture H 2 gas by water displacement 3) Physically and chemically test it THEORY- H 2 gas is gas, colorless, odorless, chemical active and will react with air and other mixtures. METHOD- Method is on the work sheet. The only change is that we steered the solution. SAFTY HAZARDS- you must wear goggles, tie up long hair, do not bring flame near hydrogen generator cause it is explosive. OBSERVATION DATA- Attached on the lab...
  • Molar Volume Of Hydrogen Gas
    1,273 words
    ABSTRACT The values for the universal gas constant R, and the volume of one mole of gas were determined. The experiment values of R and the volume of one mole of gas were then compared to the accepted values. The experimental values of R obtained were 0.09067 (L atm / mol K), 0.09514 (L atm / mol K), and 0.09040 (L atm / mol K). The molar volumes of hydrogen gas obtained were 0.1306 (L / mol), 0.1365 (L / mol), and 0.1390 (L / mol). The percent error of R was 12.20%, and the percent error of the...
