Thinking through Technology: The Path between Engineering and Philosophy

What does it suggest to contemplate know-how philosophically? Why try out? those are the problems that Carl Mitcham addresses during this paintings, a accomplished, severe advent to the philosophy of know-how and a dialogue of its resources and makes use of. Tracing the altering which means of "technology" from precedent days to our personal, Mitcham identifies an important traditions of severe research of know-how: the engineering procedure, which assumes the centrality of expertise in human existence; and the arts procedure, that's all for its ethical and cultural barriers.

These regions are the so-called electrochemical double layers with thickness in the nano-meter range and with high space charge concentrations as a result of the very high potential gradients. , a current flows through it, in fuel cell, and electrolysis mode, respectively. Note that there is a potential loss across the electrolyte due to the electrolyte resistance. The potential steps at the interfaces are now smaller compared to the OCV condition in the fuel cell case and larger in the electrolysis case due to the Testing of Electrodes, Cells, and Short Stacks 35 Fig.

If we now assume that the process of converting hydrogen to water, generating electricity and heat, was without any losses, we will retain the OCV at any rate of hydrogen conversion since ΔG = ΔH. The same would be true for electrolysis and the conversion of water to hydrogen (and oxygen). In a real system, though, we will have losses. The hydrogen–oxygen reaction involves electron transfer, which we now use in an external circuit in our electrochemical device as the current ‘produced’ or ‘consumed’ (fuel cell and electrolysis case, respectively).

At ilim, the fuel (reactant 2) is fully consumed and P2 = 0. We can then write P2 =P1 ¼ ðilim ÀiÞ=ilim ; or P2 ¼ P1 ð1 À i=ilim Þ ð41Þ The performance of the fuel cell at high currents again is determined by the processes explained for the activation losses. In addition, the actual transport (diffusion) of species to and from the reaction centres is now in focus. 5 Â 10−13 3 Â 10−11 4 Â 10−7 6 Â 10−6 5 Â 10−4 4 Â 10−3 26 R.
