Hydrogen generation challenge presentation

About this resource


Working scientifically, Chemical changes, Earth and atmospheric science, Energy

A real energy industry consultant introduces students to their challenge. They learn about the science and technology of electrolysis and how it is produced on an industrial scale, and discover how hydrogen can be used as a fuel. Then, in a practical experiment, they use a Hoffman voltameter to produce and measure hydrogen before calculating the efficiency of the process with an calculator spreadsheet.
