Practical Photovoltaics: Electricity from Solar Cells, 3rd Edition
Build and experiment with a new type of environmentally friendly "fuel cell" to learn about electrochemical cells and battery electric vehicles (or BEV's for short). The battery is a mental-air electrochemical cell, a type of battery that is widely used in small scale devices. It is ideal for demonstrating battery technology because uses only magnesium plates, salt water and oxygen in the air to generate electricity. No harmful chemicals! Magnesium is considered an eco-friendly renewable fuel because it could be harvested cleanly from ocean water. Construct 22 models and power them with this special battery. Experiment with different concentrations of salt to see how long your battery can run. Learn about electrochemistry and battery technology. Join scientists and engineers around the world in tackling the challenges of building a long-lasting, environmentally friendly, and inexpensive battery electric vehicle to reduce the total carbon dioxide emissions from automobiles. One metal plate lasts as long as a regular AA battery, and six plates are included. Replacement plates are available.
