Making Hydrogen Glossary

Use this Making Hydrogen Glossary to enhance your knowledge of projects and ideas that we are exploring!


ELECTROLYSIS-  This is a process in which an electric current is forced through a cell, causing a chemical reaction.  The resulting reaction is the water (H2O) being split into it's respective Hydrogen and Oxygen elements.PROJECT APPLICATIONS? Watch Free How To Videos.


MOSFET- Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor - Also known as an Insulated Gate Field Effect Transistor. These are the most popular and widely used types of field effect transistor (FET). MOSFETs are either NMOS (n-channel) or PMOS (p-channel) transistors, which are fabricated as individually packaged discrete components. If you are wanting an integrated circuit (IC) version, it is possible to get IC's that contain MOSFET's by the hundreds of millions inside a single wafer chip.

PROJECT APPLICATIONS? It is used for HIGH POWER applications such as PWM circuits (Pulse Width Modulating)


PWMPulse Width Modulation- 

PROJECT APPLICATIONS? A PWM can be used to pulse electrodes to produce hydrogen. A 555 timer oscillating circuit with a MOSFET, resistors, capacitors and diodes can be used for these types of circuits.

PDM - Pulse Density Modulation
