This Intro to Fuel Cells lesson plan also includes:
- Lab & Experiment
- Join to access all included materials
If you have a Hoffman apparatus or some other hydrolysis equipment, you can carry out this plan with your high schoolers. Through it, chemistry stars discover how redox reactions can serve as a possible source of electrical energy. They diagram the fuel cell, write the equation for the reaction, and calculate its efficiency. As an extension, have learners research the current use of hydrogen fuel cells and share their discoveries with the class.
