How do Fuel Cells work? Where are they used now and potentially in the future?
This program teaches students how fuel cells are being used around the world in both a domestic and industrial capacity. They learn about electrolysis of water and how hydrogen gas can be produced from this process. They then learn how hydrogen can be used in PEM Fuel Cells to create electrical energy that can power a load such as a fan. Students then carry out an experiment to determine the energy efficiency and the Faraday efficiency of the PEM Fuel cell.
