    His major discoveries came by doing experiments with cathode ray tubes which have electrons that emitted light when negative voltage and metal plates were added, this was the discovery of the electron or corpuscle as he named it (Unknown author, 1997). A cathode tube works by creating gaseous discharge, which "occurs in a gas at low pressure when subjected to an electrical potential difference, commonly applied via electrodes at the ends of a long glass tube. The resulting glow or light emission takes various forms depending on the nature of the gas, the shape of the tube and of the electrodes” (Davis, 2007, p.294) When foil was added to the cathode ray tube he could see particles of light pass through which led him to believe cathode rays were electrons (Unknown author, 1997). With further experimenting he concluded that the mass of the particles was 3 x 10-27 g which is close to todays value of .91 x 10-27 g (Davis, 2007). This discovery of a negatively charged subatomic particle that is part of an atom led him to create the plum pudding model. Further experiments with cathode rays include: magnetic deflection, electrical deflection, and measurements of mass to charge ratio. He also discovered the first evidence of isotopes using mass spectrometry to observe different light deflections due to different…

    Graham Bell wanted to upgrade the telephone and make it transmit images. Also to top it off, light was already being used it would be easier for one to make the “Photophone”. (The Invention of Television) As earlier said Philo Farnsworth won an award for a fool proof car ignition switch. This was from the Science and Invention Magazine, and this probably started his interest in electronics and technical machines. (Farnsworth, Philo) Now it is the 1900’s and people have stopped chasing…

    The Nafion membrane belongs to a class of poly-perfluoro-sulfonic acids, and consists of a hydrophobic tetrafluoroethylene backbone with pendant side-chains of perfluoronated vinyl-ethers terminated by sulfonic acid groups. Proton conductivity in Naffion and most other polymer electrolytes increases with the water activity and that is the main reason to humidify the incoming gas reactants. Sufficient water must be absorbed into the membrane to ionize the acid groups, whereas excess water can…

    Silver, lead, arsenic, bismuth, antimony, selenium, and nickel are common impurities existing in copper anodes. Some impurities dissolved from the anodes can precipitate, if their concentrations in the electrolytic solution are above saturation levels. Some of these precipitates can settle down but some are floating slimes and can be a source of cathode contamination by their incorporation into the cathode 16. These floating slimes are amorphous and typically have compositions of Sb-As-O and…

    random errors, which caused the results to be unreliable. Due to this, the raw data does not support the hypothesis. Thus, a line of best fit was drawn in order to reduce the effect of random errors, and statistically remove the outliers, to give a better representation of what the results should have been. This line of best fit suggests that the current flow through the copper electrodes increased as the electrolyte concentration increased, supporting the hypothesis, and corresponding to the…
