Hydrogen/Fuel Cells

Non rechargeable/Primary provides electrical energy until chemicals have reacted to extent that V fails
Rechargeable/Secondry chemicals react recharging reaction is reversed and chemicals are regenerated
Examples of secondry cell Ni/Cadmium Li ion/Li polymer (laptops)
Fuel Cells external supplies fuel+oxidant continual electrical supply as long as reactants supplied
Which terminal in the fuel cell provides electrons? -ve terminal (no recharging required)
What does a fuel cell required electrolyte fuel/oxidants
Where does the hydrogen come from for hydrogen cars? H2g/hydrogen rich fuels (methanol, natural gas, petrol)
How is the hydrogen generated? Fuel reacted with water to produce hydrogen and CO2
Why is methanol used as a fuel? easier to store than a gas generated from biomass CO2 is produced
Advantages of Hydrogen less CO2 less pollution/ air pollutants greater efficiency/ fuel consumption
How is hydrogen stored liquid under pressure adsorbed absorbed into lattice structure
Limitiations Toxic chemicals in fuel cells Fuel cells have a limited lifetime Absorbers/adsorbers limited lifespan Feasibility of storing a pressurised liquid Large scale storage and transport (cost effective/infrastructure)
Hydrogen economy hydrogen must be accepted as a fuel problems with handling and maintanence engergy carrier not energy source
What is a battery more than one cell joined together
example of primary batteries zinc-carbon alakaline lithium
Examples of secondary batteries Li ion lead-acid nickel-cadmium
During the reverse reaction what happens to the products from the forward reaction products stick to electrodes not dispearsed into the electrolyte

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
