    Fuel Cell Experiments and Labs


      A fuel cell produces electricity by a chemical reaction of an external fuel and an oxidant that react in the presence of an electrolyte which carries electricity from one electrode of the cell to the other.

      For example, a hydrogen fuel cell uses hydrogen as fuel and oxygen as oxidant.
