Overall I do not think hydrogen fuel cells are a very efficient source of energy seeing as how one powered by a solar panel only produced. 15 volts. A simple AAA battery produces 1. 5 volts which is ten times more than the hydrogen fuel cell and much smaller.Fuel cells require a platinum. Activity Solar Hydrogen System VEX. A third of the energy used by people is used for transportation mostly for cars, trucks, and planes. These are mostly fueled by gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel, which we get from petroleum. 1.3.1 solar hydrogen system
Activity Solar Hydrogen System Introduction A third of the energy used by people is used for transportation mostly for cars, trucks, and planes. These are mostly fueled by gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel, which we get from petroleum. To use another source of energy like wind, solar, or nuclear energy, the energy must be stored so that it is available on the vehicle.
In activity we had to design, build, test, and race a car that would run on a hydrogen fuel cell. We would use vex parts to build the car, a light and solar panel to charge the hydrogen fuel cell, a motor to move the car that was built, and a electric boardmother board to control the electric current from the hydrogen fuel cell to the motor. Hydrogen is bonded to oxygen, for instance, to make water: H 2 O. Pure hydrogen, H 2, is a gas that contains more energy compared to hydrogen that has bonded with other elements. Hydrogen gas can be burned in oxygen to produce heat; in a fuel cell, this same chemical reaction occurs in a controlled way so that it produces electricity. 1.3.1 solar hydrogen system Solar Hydrogen System. In this project our group built a solarhydrogen car. It ran on the hydrogen fuel cell which was charged by the solar panel. Then after we got the first part down we dissembled the solar and hydrogen fuel cells and hooked up aRating: 4.62 / Views: 624
