The new Hydrogen Fuel Cell Car and Experiment Kit provides a playful introduction to one of the most significant technologies of the 21st Century. With this kit you can build a model car that actually runs on water!
Fuel cells are one of the most promising means of producing energy in the future. Because they do not consume fossil fuels they are considered environmentally friendly. Every major automaker is developing fuel cells. Now your students can experiment with this cutting-edge technology!
With this unique kit and detailed teachers guide, you can build your own experimental reversible fuel cell car to learn more about this energy source. With more than 30 experiments and demonstrations, users will learn how a reversible fuel cell works to perform electrolysis as well as to create energy. The electricity required to activate electrolysis is created with a large solar cell included with the kit. During electrolysis, water is separated into hydrogen and oxygen and the resulting energy is stored as a gas. When needed, the gas is fed into the fuel cell, which then serves as the power source.Experiment Kit includes:
- How to build a solar-powered car
- Characteristics of a solar module
- Electrolysis and its effect on water
- How to construct and load a reversible fuel cell
- Decomposition of water in the fuel cell
- Qualitative and quantitative analysis of gas in a fuel cell
- How efficient is electrolysis?
- Fuel cell-powered car
- and many more!
