Textbook Problem

Technician A says that a fuel cell produces electricity through an electrochemical reaction that combines hydrogen and oxygen to form water. Technician B says that in a fuel cell, catalysts are used to ignite the hydrogen, causing a release of electrons or electrical energy. Who is correct?

a. Technician A only

b. Technician B only

c. Both A and B

d. Neither A nor B

To determine

The technician with correct approach.

Explanation

Given information:

Technician A says that a fuel cell produces electricity through a electrochemical reaction that combines hydrogen and oxygen to form water.

Technician B says that in a fuel cell, catalysts are used to ignite hydrogen, causing a release of electrons or electrical energy.

Fuel cells are a source of energy for running a vehicle by operating it like an electrical vehicle. In fuel cell vehicles, hydrogen is used as a fuel for running a vehicle. The energy is generated by igniting hydrogen to produce electrical energy. When hydrogen is ignited, it releases electrons. Hydrogen is present in form of a compound. It is a combination of oxygen and hydrogen, they combine to form water.

After ignition of fuel, energy is released, this produces electrical energy involving a electrochemical reaction...
