Hydrogen And Oxygen Combustion Engines
1,015 wordsHard to believe that the simplest atom in the universe is used in the making of the most destructive weapon known to man isnt it? Well so is the fact that it will soon (we hope) become the replacement for petroleum-based fuels, and just about every other form of fuel too. One electron orbiting one proton is all that hydrogen is, and it is mankind's future. It is easy to manufacture, (although the government says otherwise, ) safe and easy to store, and has only one by-product water. The way that...

One Of The Most Important Hydrogen Ions
1,103 wordsIn this highly technological world with advanced machines, electronics have been woven into almost every aspect of everyday life. Batteries are integrated into the majority of any electric appliance found in the home and work place, and therefore could be titled as one of the most important tools to ever be invented. The knowledge of how batteries operate is substantial to understanding the basics of any electrical contraption. The first evidence of batteries was dated to be from in the neighbor...

Carbon Dioxide Methane Renewable Energy Sources
1,623 wordsBy the middle of the twenty first century, there is evidence that the Earth will be warmer than it has been at any time in human history, and quite possibly since the end of the dinosaurs, some 65 billion years ago. If we stay at the rate we our now (fossil fuel consumption / growth in population) then within the next two century the Earth's air might not be fit to breath. Many people in the world do not think that this is a major concern and that it is normal for the Earth's temperature to incr...

Alternative Vehicle Fuel Sources
1,633 wordsAlternative Vehicle Fuel Sources For last years there is a tendency to increasing the number of vehicles in the United States. According to National Household Travel Survey this number tripled from 1969 to 2001. The same tendency is noticed in other progressive countries. Almost all of them use hydrocarbon fuels. But the sources of hydrocarbon fuels will come to end; and, most of all, carbon dioxide (CO 2) emissions causes global warming. Hydrocarbon fuels, such as coal and natural gas, are burn...

H 2 O Hydrogen Gas
635 wordsHydrogen is the Hydrogen Hydrogen Hydrogen is the lightest element. It is by far the most abundant element in the universe and makes up about about 90 % of the universe by weight. Hydrogen as water (H 2 O) is absolutely essential to life and it is present in all organic compounds. Hydrogen gas was used in lighter-than-air balloons for transport but is far too dangerous because of the fire risk (Hindenburg). commercial fixation of nitrogen from the air in the Haber ammonia process hydrogenation o...

Hydrogen Atoms Fossil Fuels
2,994 wordsHYDROGEN THE POWER SURCE OF THE FUTURE Since the beginning of the scientific revolution in the early nineties the mankind looks for an energy source that is clean and renewable; solution of this problem would be probably the most common thing in our life WATER. Water consists of two chemical elements, hydrogen and oxygen. Each molecule of water consists of two hydrogen (H 2) atoms and one oxygen (O) atom. Chemical binding between these three atoms is very stable and strong. Therefore, the reacti...
