anything as long it is related as engine or motor

Well directly a water powered engine hasn't yet been invented, but indirectly it has. By putting H2O through electrolysis you can separate its two components into H(2) and O. The hydrogen can then be used to fuel a hydrogen fuel cell engine while the Oxygen will be emitted harmlessly into the atmosphere. after the engine uses the Hydrogen, it will dispose of it and the hydrogen can effectively react with the Oxygen in the atmosphere to re create water. this water can be recycled to begin the process again and in theory, you could create an engine with infinite power on as little as a gallon of water.

You could build one today. I also hear that at least one Hydrogen powered car reached the US Market. Check with a Honda dealer or any dealer to see if there are any models available.

Like a gas combustion engine, a hydrogen engine relies on the combustion process - in this case, combustion that results when hydrogen is combined with oxygen. Fuel cells in a hydrogen-powered car then convert this mechanical energy into electrical energy.

They are either powered by a turbine engine like a jet engine or a piston engine.

Rockets are powered by oxydation of liquid hydrogen fuel.

You could make one that ran off hydrogen.

Cars which run on Hydrogen are more commonly confused with water-powered cars. So, Per see, the car is dubbed "water powered" because the car extracts the hydrogen from the water and uses the gas to run its' engine. It does this by splitting the oxygen from the Hydrogen/water by way of electrolisys in a small tank in the boot, feeding the engine in the same way as a petrol powered car. But a Hydrogen powered car uses only one or two moving parts in the engine. For alot of people, the thought of the worlds' fuel resources deminishing would be the end of the automobile. And efforts to design a new engine/fuel cell were proving very difficult until the Hydrogen cell was introduced not too long ago. Many, if not all, are hailing the design as the saviour of mankind. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/7456141.stm

The first person to build a gas engine was built by Daimler or Karl Benz.

There never were hydrogen powered airships. Hydrogen provided lift, not propulsion. Propulsion came from combustion engines using diesel or gasoline.

They used strong, light, and flexible material. The plane was powered by a simple four cylinder engine.

Airplane is a device powered either by a piston engine and prop or by a jet engine.

Generally, a Hydrogen powered car runs by using hydrogen and oxygen to create electricity in a fuel cell, which is then used to power an electric traction motor that runs the car.

Robert Fulton was the creator of The Steam Powered Engine Boat.

In 1769, the steam engine was the first automobile engine capable of human transport. In 1807, the first gas powered engine was an internal combustion engine.

The sun is powered by the fusion of hydrogen, and it has a finite amount of hydrogen at its core.

yes, for sure. hydrogen cars are created today.

There are no hydrogen powered cars being sold to the general public. Storage and fueling locations, and the potential hazard of the fuel, are the biggest hurdles.

Depends on your definition of "car" The first self-propelled vehicle was in 1769-- steam engine. The first internal combustion powered car was 1807..Hydrogen powered. The first gasoline IC car was 1886. First electric 1900. Seems we have come full-circle, the next reliable, available fuel will be hydrogen.

in 1807, François Isaac de Rivaz designed the first car powered by an internal combustion engine fuelled by hydrogen. In 1886 the firstpetrol or gasoline powered auto-mobile the Benz Patent-Motorwagen was invented by Karl Benz.

Hydrogen fuel cells are very expensive to build. They cannot operate below freezing. They require a large storage container. There is no infrastructure for refueling.

It is a car powered by an internal combustion engine running on gasoline.
