WATER POWERED HYDROGEN ENGINE

A water powered hydrogen engine is a engine that uses hydrogen as its on-board fuel for motive power. The term may refer to a personal transportation vehicle, such as an automobile, or any other vehicle that uses hydrogen in a similar fashion, such as an aircraft. The power plants of such vehicles convert the chemical energy of hydrogen to mechanical energy (torque) in one of two methods: combustion, or electrochemical conversion in a fuel-cell:
• In hydrogen internal combustion engine vehicles, the hydrogen is combusted in engines in fundamentally the same method as traditional internal combustion engine vehicles.
• In fuel-cell conversion, the hydrogen is reacted with oxygen to produce water and electricity, the latter being used to power an electric traction motor.

ELECTROLYSIS OF WATER(h2O)
An electric current is passed through two cells containing sodium sulfate solution. At one electrode, gas is generated and the indicator color changes from green to blue. At the other electrode gas is also generated, but in this case the indicator color changes from green to yellow.
When a current is passed through a sulfuric acid solution, gases are generated at each electrode. The volumes of gas are in a ratio of two to one. A lighted match causes the first gas to ignite with a loud "pop". A glowing splint inserted in the other gas burns brightly.
