Suppose a hydrogen-oxygen fuel-cell generator was used to produce electricity for a house. Use the balanced redox reactions and the standard cell potential to predict the volume of hydrogen gas (at STP) required each month to generate the electricity needed for a typical house. Assume the home uses 1600 of electricity per month.

    Where do you want to go with this? You should start with the basic fuel cell equation. If you can't balance it show the reactants and explain what you don't understand about balancing redox equations.
