Recommended Silberberg Problems, Chapter 21: 1-3, 9, 10, 12, 14, 18, 22-27, 29, 31, 33, 35-37, 40-42, 52, 53, 55, 56, 60, 66, 70, 74, 76, 78, 81-83, 87, 89, 101, 105, 110, 111, 116, 129, 144, 158. • The Bloom Box -- is it the fuel cell everyone's been trying to make? Solid-oxide-based fuel cells, which operate at ~800 o C, are attractive because they can use a variety of fuels (e.g., methane and biogas) and can have fuel efficiencies of ~80%, if the heat released during the redox reaction is captured in a co- generation system. However, current solid oxide fuel cells are very expensive and often not very reliable. Hydrogen-based generation system....
