A Hydrogen-oxygen Fuel Cell

In this classic demonstration, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, two methods of making a hydrogen oxygen fuel cell are described. One involves the use of platinum electrodes and the other uses carbon electrodes. Each cell has a potential difference of around 1 Volt. The resource provides a list of apparatus and...
