Definitions of Fuel cell on the Web:
- A device that converts the energy of a fuel directly to electricity and heat, without combustion.
- A technology that produces electricity through a chemical reaction similar to that found in a battery.
- An electrochemical engine (no moving parts) that converts the chemical energy of a fuel such as hydrogen, and an oxidant, such as oxygen, directly to electricity. ...
- A device similar to a battery in which fuels such as hydrogen gas or methane can be combined directly with oxygen to produce electricity and very little heat. (See battery and cell.)
- The racecar’s gas tank, which is mounted under the deck lid, consisting of a metal box containing a foam baffled tear resistant rubber bladder that holds the fuel. The usually unbreakable fuel cell was developed to help prevent fires in racecar crashes.
- A device for generating electricity by the chemical combination a fuel and oxygen.
- a device that produces electricity through an electrochemical process, usually from hydrogen and oxygen.
- A fuel cell operates like a battery. But unlike a battery, a fuel cell does not run down or require recharging. It will produce energy in the form of electricity and heat as long as fuel is supplied. A fuel cell consists of two electrodes sandwiched around an electrolyte. ...
- A device that produces electricity with high efficiency (little heat) by using a fuel and a chemical which reacts with it (an oxidizer) at two separate electrical terminals. An electric current is thereby produced.
- A type of battery, starting to be used in some vehicles in a bid to reduce emissions. Fuel cells produce electricity, heat and water by combining hydrogen and oxygen - no harmful emissions if the fuel source is hydrogen. Top
- An electrochemical cell in which the reactants are supplied on a continuing basis.
- In this device, electrons are removed from hydrogen atoms to form an electric current; the hydrogen ions combine with oxygen to form water.
- A device that converts the chemical energy of a fuel and an oxidant directly into electricity. The principal components of a fuel cell include electrodes catalytically activated for the fuel (anode) and the oxidant (cathode), and an electrolyte to conduct ions between two electrodes; thereby ...
- A catalyst that creates electricity by combining hydrogen and oxygen into water.
- a device that generates electrical power by electrochemically combining hydrogen and oxygen gases to produce water and heat; the energy released is tapped by electrodes as electric current; this technology is considered "green" ie environment friendly
- A device that converts the energy of a fuel, (hydrogen, natural gas, methanol, gasoline, etc.) and an oxidant (air or oxygen) into useable electricity.
- a galvanic cell for which the reactants are continuously supplied
- an advanced propulsion system that relies on the chemical interaction of natural gas (or other feedstock fuel) and certain other metals, such as platinum, gold and other electrolytes to produce electricity. The only by-product of fuel cell operation is water. ...
- Race car gas tank. Consists of a metal "box" that contains a flexible tear-resistant bladder and foam baffling. From aerospace technology, it's designed to eliminate or minimize fuel spillage - and the possibility of fire -- in a crash. ...
- cell that produces electricity by oxidation of fuel (hydrogen and oxygen or zinc and air); often used in electric cars
- A fuel cell is an electrochemical energy conversion device. It produces electricity from various external quantities of fuel (on the anode side) and oxidant (on the cathode side). These react in the presence of an electrolyte. ...
- An electrochemical device in which the intrinsic chemical free energy of fuel and oxidant is catalytically converted to direct current energy
