Textbook Problem

Which of the following is not a limitation for the use of hydrogen as a fuel?

  1. (a) An inexpensive method of producing hydrogen
  2. (b) A practical means of storing hydrogen
  3. (c) Hydrogen is explosive
  4. (d) A distribution system (hydrogen refueling stations)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The statement which is not a limitation for the use of hydrogen as a fuel should be identified.

Concept introduction:

The major problem facing by human beings is the crisis of diminishing the energy sources. The amount of fossil fuel has decreased rapidly so that an alternative fuel supply should be found out. Hydrogen came out to be a better option for this crisis.

Hydrogen economy: The process of producing, storing and using of hydrogen as a fuel

In automobile industry gasoline may be replaced by hydrogen and it act as natural gas too.

Explanation

Reason for the correct answer:

Hydrogen economy: The process of producing, storing and using of hydrogen as a fuel.

The energy produced by the oxidation of hydrogen is much higher than the energy produced by the oxidation of other fossil fuels. The advantage of using hydrogen is that the oxidation only produces water as a product.

Hydrogen can act as a better fuel if some of the problems are solved. They are:

  • Need to find out an inexpensive method to produce hydrogen
  • A practical means of storing hydrogen
  • A...
