Hydrogen Fuel Generation with Electrolysis


Recommended Posts

To Whom this may concern:


When an electrical current I is passed through water containing some acid like acetic acid,


hydrogen gas can be produced and the cathode electrode and oxygen gas can be


produced at the anode electrode. The water and the acid form an electrolyte


that can conduct electricity. The electrical resistance R of the electrolyte seems


to reduce as the temperature T of the electrolyte was increased. The electrical


resistance of the electrolyte is:




where facter k is about 1.6*10^5 degrees celsius ohm for 0.01 acetic acid to water by volume.


The stronger the acid strength, the smaller the facter k seemed to be.


If one hydrogen atom is produced for each electron send into the electrolyte, then


the number of electrons or hydrogen atoms produced may be:


n=Q/1.6*10^-19 coulomb per electron.


The electronic charge Q send into the electrolyte during a given time period t may then be:


Q=I t.


The electrical voltage V applied to the electrodes to produce current I through the electrolyte


may then be:




The amount n of hydrogen gas produced per electrical input power V*I needed into electrolyte


then depends on electrolyte temperature T and its acid strength of the electrolyte.
