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 chemicals needed for the experiment, together with teaching tips. Curriculum links include: electrochemistry, fuel cells, energy in chemistry.
