  • Using Oil And Its Byproducts

    1766 Words  | 8 Pages

    INTRODUCTION Throughout the years mankind has been using oil and its byproducts as a means of propulsion. However, we live in a world of finite resources and as oil is depleting it is necessary to find different resources. Using electricity as means of propulsion instead of internal combustion engines which is the current trend in most mechanical applications such as those in cars, ships and airplanes is what the world has deemed to be a solution to the over use of oil and its byproducts. Electricity

  • Hydrogen Fuel Of The Future

    1555 Words  | 7 Pages

    the minds of many. Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe and has been present since the beginning of time. Hydrogen is the smallest element in the universe, hydrogen consists as a diatomic, gaseous molecule with a single proton and a single electron. Hydrogen does not exist in its pure form on the planet, but it is present as a compound in molecules like water, glucose, natural gas, and even oil (Busby). Because it is found in such a variety of sources, hydrogen is the perfect power

    The car has been a mainstay of American culture for about a century. The idea of a car in every garage has been around for almost as long. Teenagers view getting their driver's license as a rite of passage and our cross-country highways support the notion of the Great American Road Trip. We drive our cars everywhere. And after all these years, doing so has become a problem. [1] Over the last century, the Earth's average temperature has risen by 1.4 °F. Over the next century, that average

  • Hydrogen Essay

    chemical elements, hydrogen and oxygen. Each molecule of water consists of two hydrogen (H2) atoms and one oxygen (O) atom. Chemical binding between these three atoms is very stable and strong. Therefore, the reaction of hydrogen and oxygen is under normal circumstances very intense and generates a lot of energy. 2H2 + O2 ® 2H2O + energy Both, hydrogen and oxygen are gases at normal temperatures and pressures and the product of this reaction is pure

  • Essay on Hydrogen Fuel Cells Vs. Gasoline

    1210 Words  | 5 Pages

    Hydrogen Fuel Cells Vs. Gasoline: Who’s Down With HFC? ABSTRACT: The world’s oil supply is a diminishing nonrenewable resource. Soon, a new fuel for automobiles will be needed. Hydrogen fuel cells may very well become the chief replacement for gasoline in our society. INTRODUCTION: In our busy world today, we often find ourselves surrounded by vehicles. But how often do we ponder about by which means these vehicles are running? Vehicles are fueled by gasoline, a gradually diminishing resource

    storage atop of the locomotives chassis, as seen in the illustration to the right. Careful consideration went into designing a containment that would alleviate unnecessary risks of spillage, as the hydrogen will naturally vent upward into the atmosphere due to its natural properties (Miller, 2010). It is rational to express caution in hydrogen based rail transport; furthermore, extensive testing prior to implementation is a must, nonetheless how in frequent rail incidents are in contrast to road

  • The Combustion of Polymers

    1562 Words  | 7 Pages

    Introduction The history of polymers stretch back millions of years. These “primitive” polymers were created by nature to fulfill the needs of information storage, energy storage and information reproduction. Human made polymers are a more recent invention, of the last two hundred years or so. These polymers are general made of highly flammable hydrocarbons and their derivatives. Fires caused by a combination of human careless and the physical properties of hydrocarbons have caused millions of dollars

    through a chemical reaction called dehydration synthesis. The resulting polymer can be disassembled through the complementary process called hydrolysis.Carbohydrates are made of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen atoms in a 1:2:1 ratio. This means that for every carbon atom present in the carbohydrate there are two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom present. The monomers for carbohydrates are referred to as monosaccharides. When many monosaccharides are chained together the resulting molecule is called a
