Fuel Cell

Make a presentation by reading different sections of chapter 2. When making presentation pleases answer the following questions or cover the suggested topics. Your presentation will be graded. Rehearse your presentation so that it does not take more than 15 minutes of the class time.

( covering all the topics,  quality of presentation, and marks for quality of in-class presentation)

Chapter 2:

2.1: Thermodynamics review

2.1.2 to 2.1.4 What is internal energy? Describe first law and second law of thermodynamics.

2.1.2 to 2.1.4 Discuss an example where concept of internal energy, thermodynamics first and second law is utilized.

2.1.5: What is thermodynamics potential?

Discuss four types of thermodynamics potentials.

Discuss step by step how you will get Gibbs free energy potential (equation 2.15) on page 30

Discuss how you will get enthalpy potential equation (equation 2.20) on page 31.
