Build a Hydrogen Fuel Cell in Your Kitchen
Posted by keelynet on October 20, 2009
A neat little experiment.
“Scitoys has a great tutorial on how to build a working hydrogen fuel cell with objects from around the house.
And the best part is, the whole thing will take you 10 minutes or so, which makes this a perfect project to do with your attention-span-lacking kids to introduce them to renewable energy concepts. Especially if there’s a science fair or something coming up.
Plus, it’s a really great DIY illustration of how the cell works, if you’re curious yourself. And who doesn’t want a hydrogen fuel cell next to their fridge? What you’ll need:
* A popsickle stick or similar small piece of wood or plastic.
* A 9 volt battery clip.
* A 9 volt battery.
* Some transparent sticky tape.
* A glass of water.
* A volt meter.
* One foot of platinum coated nickel wire, or pure platinum wire.” – SourceAdvertisements
