Where does sound travel fastest - dense or less dense air?

Because sound travels by vibration of matter, the density of the medium through which it is traveling will affect its speed. The denser the molecules, the faster it will travel. So sound will trave... Read More »

What is the pressure of a hydrogen storage supply tank for a hydrogen fuel cell?

Current fuel cells typically store hydrogen gas at 5,000 pounds per square inch (psi) of pressure. State-of-the-art tanks with a 10,000 psi capacity are in development. Cryogenic storage of liquid... Read More »
