Which of the following statements about fuel cells is NOT true?

a. A single fuel cell produces very low voltage, normally less than one volt.

b. A fuel cell produces electricity through an electro-chemical reaction that combines hydrogen and oxygen to form water.

c. A fuel cell is composed of two electrodes coated with a catalyst and separated from each other by an electrolyte and from the case by separators.

d. In a fuel cell, catalysts are used to ignite the hydrogen; this causes a release of electrons or electrical energy.

To determine

Whether the given statement is false.

Explanation

Given information:

Which of the following statements about fuel cells is NOT true?

  1. A single fuel cell produces very low voltage, normally less than one volt.
  2. A fuel cell produces electricity through an electrochemical reaction that combines hydrogen and oxygen to form water.
  3. A fuel cell is composed of two electrodes coated with a catalyst and separated from each other by an electrolyte and form the case by separators.
  4. In a fuel cell, catalysts are used to ignite the hydrogen; this causes a release of electrons or electrical energy.

Hydrogen is used as a source of energy in fuel cells. It is used as fuel for running electric vehicles. It is present in form of a compound, for example hydrogen and oxygen combine to form water. Hydrogen and carbon combine in stochiometric ratio to form hydrocarbons.

Fuel cells are the source of energy for running a vehicle by operating it as an electrical vehicle. In fuel cell vehicles, hydrogen is used as fuel for running a vehicle. The energy is generated by igniting the hydrogen to produce electrical energy. When hydrogen is ignited it releases electrons.

Hydrogen is present in the form of a compound. It is a combination of oxygen and hydrogen. They combine to form water. Fuel cells used in electric vehicles use hydrogen for a source of energy. A fuel injector is used to inject hydrogen into fuel cells for the generation of electricity...
