  • OBJECTTO MAKE HYDROGEN FUEL CELL CAR.

  • HYDROGEN FUEL CELLITS CONSTRUCTION AND WORKING

  • APPARATUS

    To make the fuel cell, we need the following:One foot of platinum coated nickel wire, or pure platinum wire. Since this is not a common household item, we carry platinum coated nickel wire.A popsicle stick or similar small piece of wood or plastic.A 9 volt battery clip.A 9 volt battery.Some transparent sticky tape.A glass of water.A volt meter.HYDROGEN FUEL CELL

  • STEPS FOR MAKNIG HYDROGEN FUEL CELL STEP 1 The first step is to cut the platinum coated wire into two six inch long pieces, and wind each piece into a little coiled spring that will be the electrodesin our fuel cell. Next, we cut the leads of the battery clip in half and strip the insulation off of the cut ends. Then we twist the bare battery lead wires onto the ends of the platinum coated electrodes, as shown in the photo. The battery clip will be attached to the electrodes, and two wires will also be attached to the electrodes, and will later be used to connect to the volt meter.

  • STEP 2 The electrodes are then taped securely to the popsicle stick. Last, the popsicle stick is taped securely to the glass of water, so that the electrodes dangle in the water for nearly their entire length. The twisted wire connections must stay out of the water, so only the platinum coated electrodes are in the water.

  • STEP 3

    Now connect the red wire to the positive terminal of the volt meter, and the black wire to the negative (or "common") terminal of the volt meter. The volt meter should read 0 volts at this point, although a tiny amount of voltage may show up, such as 0.01 volts.

    fuel cell is now complete.

  • To operate the fuel cell, we need to cause bubbles of hydrogen to cling to one electrode, and bubbles of oxygen to cling to the other. There is a very simple way to do this.We touch the 9 volt battery to the battery clip (we don't need to actually clip it on, since it will only be needed for a second or two).Touching the battery to the clip causes the water at the electrodes to split into hydrogen and oxygen, a process calledelectrolysis. You can see the bubbles form at the electrodes while the battery is attached.

  • WORKING OF HYDROGEN FUEL CELL

  • FUEL CELLS & REDOX REACTIONOXIDATION:Anode (negative electrode): e- leave the cellH2 2H+ + 2e-

    REDUCTION:Cathode (positive electrode): e- enter the cell4H+ + 4e- + O2 2H2O

  • FUEL CELLS & CATALYSTS (rate of reaction):The splitting of H2 into p+ and e- at the anode is typically speeded up by the presence of a catalyst (typically metal placed on the anode, or the electrode itself)

  • Electrolyte permit only appropriate ions to pass between anode and cathode; otherwise the chemical reaction may be disrupted
