  • Is Hydrogen The Answer

    Introduction Rising oil cost has everyone looking for alternative fuels or reductions in consumption. Some look for electric hybrids while others ride motorcycles or scooters. Americans have always been willing to try new technologies and innovate in times of need. This innovation has lead to the use of hydrogen and hydrogen boosters to fuel new cars and supplement existing gasoline engines. Hybrids are cars that use gasoline engines combined with batteries and electric motors. These use less gas then conventional all gas powered engines, however they are expensive and do not offer the savin

    The Hydrogen Hype: Best Or Worst Form Of Alternative Energy

    2209 words, 9 pages

    There are many different ways that the human race has come up with to defend our planet from the greenhouse gasses, and also to free ourselves from foreign fuels. There are electric cars fueled by solar energy, hybrid vehicles that run on petrol and electricity, hydrogen fuel cell cars that use hydrogen, and some others. Fuel cell cars use an alternative method to oil to create energy. Fuel cell cars use hydrogen instead of oil and, in turn, emit zero greenhouse gas emissions. However, these new energy methods have their own downfalls. They are expensive to create and this leads them to b

    Hydrogen Production And Microbe Ventus Discipulus

    1510 words, 7 pages

    An unknown microbe was discovered and isolated from a Tennessee State Park, provided with nutrient broth and cultivated into a pure culture in order to determine the levels of hydrogen production. This small rod shaped microbe did not show relatively high levels of hydrogen production which would allow for use in the commercial market place, such as an alternative fuel source. However, this microbe can provide for a better study then that of Escherichia coli showing a low hydrogen production at 0.5 mL H2 g. DW-1. h-1.

    Rethinking Travel

    With technology expanding as much as it is today, it’s somewhat shocking to notice how in some cases, how little we actually have grown. There are no hover cars or flying bikes, we are still driving our gasoline powered cars that are running off of the same type of oil we have used and fought for, for all these years. You would think with air pollution being at an all time high, there would be a better solution. The United States itself consume 383 million gallons of gas per day, “which is over two thirds of the national oil consumption,” (Satyapal, 2007) Not a pretty f

    Background: Catalse is an enzyme normally found in many plants and animals. Its purpose is to defend off any toxic substances by destroying them. It is also use by some cells to destroy cellular waste. This lab will demonstrate the effect of temperature and pH on the action of this enzyme. The substrate of the enzyme will be hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Catalase works by the following mechanism. 2H2O2 ( 2H2O + O2 What is the effect of temperature and pH on the activity of catalase?

    Radical Chlorination Of Chlorobutane

    1003 words, 5 pages

    Introduction: The radical chlorination of chlorobutane results in the formation of four possible products. These products are formed by substitution reactions, where a halogen atom (chlorine) replaces a hydrogen atom (Wade 2010). The amount of each product formed is based on the relative reactivity of the product. The calculations of the relative reactivity are dependent on the reactivity of the hydrogen atoms, which is influenced by the chloro substituent as well as other factors such as the level of the substituted carbon and the bond dissociation energy. For this l

    Introduction Water is without a doubt the most important substance known to mankind. It is an essential to life, being involved in practically every process that occurs in plants, animals and humans. While the molecules of water are simple in structure (H2O), the chemical and physical properties of the compound are quite complicated and unique. It is because of its unique and complex properties that water is able to support life. Chemical Structure The water molecule has two lone pairs of electrons. These two pairs along with the two hydrogen atoms give the mo
