The Discovery and Usage of Hydrogen
Hydrogen fuel cells were invented by Sir William Robert Grove. However, they were not put to use until the 1960s when General Electric established workable proton-exchange membrane cells used as power supplies in the Apollo and Gemini space missions. Now, many years later, there is concern within the U.S. government over th...

A Description of the Several Ways of Packaging Hydrogen
Hydrogen can be "packaged" in several ways, as a fuel gas in a H2/02 powered engine or the newly devised solid state pellet of hydrogen isotopes that contains about the equivalent of 5000 cubic feet of hydrogen and is broken down and releases gas into the second chamber where it goes to the engine for use. There a...

An Introduction to the Analysis of Atoms
Hey kids! Today I'm going to introduce you to the world of atoms. Atoms are
little things that you or anybody else have ever seen. Make up things like trees,
cars, paper, even you. So let's shrink down to size and see what it's like.
We're going to into the Helium atom today. An atom is made of little things
called protons,...

Understanding the Composition of Atoms and Molecules
There are only about 100 different kinds of atoms in the entire universe. Everything we see is made up of these 100 atoms in an unlimited number of combinations. They continuously vibrate, move and rotate. Even the atoms that make up the chairs that we sit in are moving around in class. Atoms can be in “different states of...

The Characteristics of Hydrogen, the First Element on the Periodic Table
Hydrogen Hydrogen is the first element that can be found on the periodic table. It has only one electron and one energy level. Having only one proton and one electron causes it to be very light in weight. The British scientist Henry Cavendish is given credit with discovering hydrogen in 1766, but studies show that German-S...

A Brief Analysis of the ph Unit
The Study of pH pH is the measure of H (a proton) a concentration of a solution. In order to understand pH, a scale has been designed, this scale ranges from 0 to 14. Anything from 0 to 6.99 is acidic, a substance that increases hydrogen ions concentration in a solution, such as lemon juice. If the scale ranges from 8...
