Unformatted text preview: was used is still in it rudimentary phase, so some difficulties were experienced in the laboratory procedure. However, despite some problems with the experimental apparatus the generation of hydrogen through electrolysis was successful, as was the subsequent power generation. The theory behind the hydrogen fuel cell is that hydrogen and oxygen can be combined to create energy, and yield only water as en emission. This is a preferable to fossil fuels which generate significant pollutants after combustion. Unfortunately though the hydrogen must first be produced 1...
