Hydrogen Fuel Generation with Electrolysis

To Whom this may concern:

When an electrical current I is passed through water containing some acid like acetic acid,
hydrogen gas can be produced and the cathode electrode and oxygen gas can be
produced at the anode electrode. The water and the acid form an electrolyte
that can conduct electricity. The electrical resistance R of the electrolyte seems
to reduce as the temperature T of the electrolyte was increased. The electrical
resistance of the electrolyte is:

R=k/T,

where facter k is about 1.6*10^5 degrees celsius ohm for 0.01 acetic acid to water by volume.
The stronger the acid strength, the smaller the facter k seemed to be.
If one hydrogen atom is produced for each electron send into the electrolyte, then
the number of electrons or hydrogen atoms produced may be:

n=Q/1.6*10^-19 coulomb per electron.

The electronic charge Q send into the electrolyte during a given time period t may then be:

Q=I t.

The electrical voltage V applied to the electrodes to produce current I through the electrolyte
may then be:

V=I*R=I*k/T.

The amount n of hydrogen gas produced per electrical input power V*I needed into electrolyte
then depends on electrolyte temperature T and its acid strength of the electrolyte.
 
good idea, but there already testing with it on newer cars. SO we might be seeing hydrogen driven cars in the near furture.
