In today’s segment we did a little example of the amount of energy in hydrogen. This is one experiment to NOT do at home because hydrogen is explosive and should only be used by those experienced with it.

Hydrogen is important to take note of because of all the talk about hydrogen fuel cells.  This is essentially finding a way to make power from water.  Water is 2 parts hydrogen and one part oxygen.  If you break the oxygen and hydrogen apart and get the hydrogen, it can be used to generate power.  In today’s experiment you will see just how explosive  hydrogen can be and therefore the energy you can get out of it.
