Textbook Problem

The component that changes the molecular structure of hydrocarbons into hydrogen-rich gas is called a.

a. pressure container

b. fuel cell

c. fuel injector

d. reformer

To determine

Name the hydrogen rich gas formed by changing the molecular structure of hydrocarbons.

Explanation

Given information:

  1. Pressure container.
  2. Fuel cell.
  3. Fuel injector.
  4. reformer.

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 the compound, for example, hydrogen and oxygen combine to form water. Hydrogen and carbon combine in stochiometric ratio to form hydrocarbons.

Hydrogen can also be separated from hydrocarbons by using reformers. Reformers help in extracting hydrogen by using high-temperature steam. It can also be separated by using electrolysis.

Fuel cells used in electric vehicles used hydrogen for a source of energy. A fuel injector is used to inject hydrogen into fuel cells for generation of electricity...
