How do we make hydrogen for our vehicles?

    Hydrogen is made for hydrogen vehicles through the process of electrolysis. Water is combined with an electrolyte, a current is ran through the solution which then forces the hydrogen and water molecules to split. However, this process is highly expensive. Hope this helps!

    Hydrogen is generated by splitting water.  The molecular formula of water is H2O, you are probably aware of this.  So when a current is run through water, bubbles will form.  These bubbles are hydrogen and oxygen.  You can try this experiment at home with a battery and some wires (make sure you have parental permission and supervision if you are not an adult).  If you place two wires into a beaker of water and have something like a test tube positioned above them, you can collect the gasses. Hydrogen will form from the negative electrode and oxygen from the positive electrode in a 2 to 1 ratio.  Here is a link to more detailed instructions if you would like to try it.
