Micro Fuel Cell


Physical Sciences

Focus Area:

Utilisation of Fuel Cell

Social Benefits:

Fuel cells are different from batteries in requiring a continuous source of fuel and oxygen or air to sustain the chemical reaction, whereas in a battery the chemicals present in the battery react with each other to generate an electromotive force (emf). Fuel cells can produce electricity continuously for as long as these inputs are supplied
