Homework Help: Fuel Cells -catalyst converter

  1. May 10, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Do fuel cell vehicles have a catalytic converter? Where is it located?

    The attempt at a solution[/b]

    I am guessing that the the question qould be referring to precious metal catalyst located at anode region which breaks the fuel into protons and electrons?

    What is a catalytic converter? How does it work? Or, more precisely: what does it do? How does the fuel cell work? In what ways is the fuel cell different from the combustion engine?
