Imagine how convenient it would be if two-thirds of the Earth's surface was covered with a readily available, nonpolluting fuel source. With the discoveries being made in regards to salt water fuel, you may not have to imagine much longer. In 2003, John Kanzius serendipitously discovered a way to burn salt water. How would salt water fuel impact the world?
What is used to generate the heat that sets the salt water on fire?
a micro ray
a radio frequency generator
a nanoparticle-focusing device
Radio waves break the bonds holding together what elements of salt water?
sodium chloride and hydrogen
sodium chloride, hydrogen and oxygen
hydrogen and oxygen
What is actually burning when salt water ignites?
Which of the following is not one of the drawbacks of using hydrogen gas as a fuel source?
The RFG flame can reach temperatures as high as:
2,000 degrees Fahrenheit (1,093 degrees Celsius)
3,000 degrees Fahrenheit (1,649 degrees Celsius)
5,000 degrees Fahrenheit (2,760 degrees Celsius)
Why was the radio frequency generator initially designed?
to isolate hydrogen for fuel
to desalinate ocean water
to kill cancer cells
Aside from destroying cancer cells, what other issue did John Kanzius think the RFG could solve?
What is Aquygen?
a biofuel made with salt water
a gas made up of hydrogen that has been separated from water
a hydrogen and helium fuel mixture
How do the makers of Aquygen isolate hydrogen?
high pressure plasma beams
When mixed with regular gasoline, Aquygen creates a fuel that improves gas mileage by how much?
