Fuel Cell Cars: How a Fuel Cell Vehicle Works

Fuel Cell Cars – How it Works?

Do you would like know how a hydrogen fuel cell works to power a car? Automaker Hyundai is offering a cool visual on how its fuel cells operate in vehicles. Basically, the anode splits the hydrogen molecule into a positive and negative ion. The negative ions are used for electricity, while the positive ions are pushed through a membrane to the cathode, where both ions are combined with oxygen to create the byproduct of water. There’s a little more to it than that to make it work in a car. Check for yourself in the animation below.
