Fuel cells are capable of converting fuel directly to electrical energy. All of the fuel cells currently in production are relatively expensive and considerably less than perfect, especially since they get so hot and waste electricity.

There are a few different types of fuel cells. Some run on hydrogen, others on methane.
Special gas tank used in race cars.
A fuel cell refers to a cell producing electric current directly, this is usually from a chemical reaction.

There are 3 main types of a Fuel Cell. 1. Hydrogen Fuel Cell. This is the main one people use nowadays. 2. Solid Oxide Fuel Cell. 3. Alkaline Fuel cell. Made from Alkaline metals.

The fuel for a cell is made up of oxygen and hydrogen. The chemical energy produced by the two is what is converted to serve as fuel for the cell.

A fuel cell is different from a battery cell in so far as reactants are constantly supplied to a fuel cell making it an open system whereas a battery cell is a closed system that stores the reactants within it. A fuel cell works as long as fuel is supplied to it whereas a battery cell requires regular replacements.

Install a hydrogen fuel cell. Google fuel cell llc. I noticed their first cell produce is for the N14

Fuel cell vehicle is the vehicle which is using fuel cell stack as a moving force instead of conventional combustions engines. They can be fed by H2 - so it will hydrogen fuel cell, or work on the solid oxide fuel cell principles. We have published several article at our website http://fuelcellsinfo.com Please check

The main fuel source for the work of the cell is the mitochondria.

A biological fuel cell is another term for a microbial fuel cell, a bio-electrochemical system which drives a current by mimicking bacterial interactions found in nature.

Merlin the mechanical owl will recover the fuel cell for you. Feed him a robot mouse and he will retrieve the dropped fuel cell : point to him, then to it.

Hydrogen Fuel Cell converts the thermal energy released directly into electrical energy.. This fuel cell was used in the Apollo Programe. It also produces water.....

User Avatar

a fuel cell is a cell that produces electricity they are used to provied power and water for the spacecraft so the space craft could'nt really survive with out fuel cells

fuel cells are the hydrogen fuel cell that operates similar to a battery. It has two electrodes, an anode and a cathode, separated by a membrane.fuel cell is a type of an electro-chemical cell which can convert the fuel energy into electrical energy by reactions of oxidized and fuel particles triggered in the presence of electrolyte

Half the size of the fuel cell. If NASCAR were to mandate an 11-gallon fuel cell, the dump can would be 5.5 gallons.

The fuel cell hydrogen is one of the two gasses, that are created by the seperations of a water molecule H2O. A water molecule consists of H - hydrogen, and O - oxygen. A fuel cell hydrogen is the gas created by the separation of a water molecule with the help of a fuel cell.

it squirts hydrogen throgh a fuel cell to make electricity to power the car

A fuel cell car would be defined as a vehicle with an electric motor or engine that uses a fuel cell to produce electricity to power its motor with hydrogen.

cant learn every individual move of the system but i know what the fuel cell will be good for

Water vapor is the sole byproduct of fuel cell electric vehicles.

Potato power does not technically count as a fuel cell because of its electrochemical processes and solid fuel source.

The mitochondria of a cell convert food and fuel particles into usable energy. The cell needs this energy to kickstart necessary reactions.

All of them, given the right technology. * Mercury. Solar power * Venus. Heat exchanger * Earth. Fossil fuels, solar, wind and nuclear power. * Mars. Wind power * Jupiter. Hydrogen fuel cell * Saturn. Hydrogen fuel cell * Uranus. Hydrogen fuel cell + methane combustion * Neptune. Hydrogen fuel cell + methane combustion
