Filed under Feature, Why Hydrogen

Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe and is found in roughly ¾ of all matter, which makes it an excellent candidate to replace nonrenewable fossil fuels. It is the first element listed in the periodic table because it is the smallest with an atomic number of 1.  It is an invisible, tasteless, [...]

With each passing day, scientists are coming out with unique solutions to lessen our dependence on fossil fuels. They are now thinking of turning stray forms of energy such as noise or random vibrations from the environment into useful form of energy. They want to use piezoelectric effect for such purposes. Some materials produce electricity [...]
