Can Hydrogen Peroxide Aid in the Efficiency of the Combustion of Ethanol?
Division:Physical & Mathematical Sciences
Region:Algoma Rotary
City:Echo Bay, ON
School:Korah Collegiate & Vocational School
Abstract:This experiment tested to see if adding various concentrations of hydrogen peroxide to ethanol could increase the energy output during combustion. This is based on the oxidizing qualities of hydrogen peroxide, in the hopes of determining a more efficient version of the environmentally-friendly fuel, ethanol. The experiment was conducted using a calorimeter, and 11 different ratios of ethanol to hydrogen peroxide.
