Abstract

This experiment determined the relationship between hydrogen used and the distance travelled by a working model of a Hydrogen Fuel Cell Car. This study also determined the efficiency of the Hydrogen Fuel Cell by determining the relationship between the time interval and distance travelled. The distance the car travelled on each volume of hydrogen measured, and the distance the car traveled in a certain time interval was also determined. The results suggest that there is a direct relationship between the volume of hydrogen gas used and the distance travelled as well as the time interval. The independent variable was the amount of hydrogen used, and the dependent variable was the distance travelled, time used, and the electrical power produced by the same amount of hydrogen gas. The results of this study can help determine if Hydrogen Fuel Cells should be used as a future power source for cars.
