Energy in Liquid Hydrogen

  1. Apr 28, 2010 #1
    When working with liquid hydrogen or LH2 as a fuel how can you determine how much energy will be released when you break the bond. And an off topic question here can you determine how much force that energy that will produce.

    Breaking a bond never releases energy, quite the opposite - breaking a bond always consumes energy. And it doesn't make a physical sense to ask "how much force energy will produce", as force is not directly related to energy.
