Unformatted text preview: To power the car, hydrogen and oxygen are introduced into the fuel cell, which contains an electrical current. The electrical current separates the electrons off the hydrogen once the water is formed inside the fuel cell. The electrons are screened off and then sent to power a motor and in turn power a vehicle. The fuel cell’s only waste product is harmless water. Fuel cell and hydrogen technology is sometimes called “cold combustion” because there is not heat or gasoline waste during the process of powering a motor. Hydrogen can also power cars by a different method called Hydrogen internal combustion. This method uses a slightly modified gasoline combustion engine to power the motor, but the fuel cell is more efficient and therefore more popular with car companies....
