How do you build hydrogen generators with household items?


Answer by  bashar (80)

Water electrolysis be done by simply putting two charged plates, called electrodes, into a container of water and hooking them to the terminals of a battery. Hydrogen will bubble up from one electrode and oxygen will bubble from the other. Needless to say, you will shock yourself or start a fire if you're not careful.

There are two simple way to produce hydrogen at home. The first method is to solve metals in acidic solution, where hydrogen gas is formed. Diluted hydrochloric and sulfuric acid, as well as tin as metal are available. The second method is electrolysis of diluted sulfuric acid.

You can make a simply hydrogen collector using a bottle, some water, wire, and a battery. Then use the bottle to collect hydrogen bubbles off the negative wire.

You can obtain hydrogen by splitting water molecules using electrolysis. Attach wires to the leads of a 9volt battery. Dissolve salt in a glass of water. Put the wires from the battery in the water but don't let them touch. You will see Hydrogen and Oxygen bubbles on the wires.
