This sheet provides a concise
explanation of what hydrogen fuel cell are and how they can
be used as an energy source. It also outlines the chemical
reaction, half reactions and energy transformations that
occur in a hydrogen fuel cell as hydrogen gas combines with
oxygen to form water and release energy.
Describes and illustrates
hydrogen fuel cells.
Describes the applications
and uses of hydrogen fuel cells as energy
Explains the half reactions
that occur at the anodes and cathodes within the hydrogen
