How does a fuel cell differ from electrolysis?
Jul 30, 2016
please note this:
- Fuel cell---a cell producing an electric current direct from a chemical reaction.
- Electrolysis---electrolysis is a technique that uses a direct electric current (DC) to drive an otherwise non-spontaneous chemical reaction.
The differences are:
- Fuel cell is an object but electrolysis is a technique.
- Fuel cell uses electricity generated in a chemical reaction,but in electrolysis we supply electricity for a chemical reaction to occur.
