Scattering of Free Electrons with Hydrogen Atoms in Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell System
The objective of this work is to study the Klein-Nishina (KN) cross section during the collision of free electrons and atoms (H-atom and Pt-atom) near the cathode of Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFCs). The developed KN cross section was computed using MATLAB shows KN cross section decrease with an increase with the temperature. The maximum KN cross section recorded for single scattering is about -70.2m2 and -66m2 in natural log terms during the collision of free electrons with H-atom and Pt-atom, respectively. The maximum KN cross section recorded for 1ml flow of hydrogen is about -26.6m2 and -22.25m2 in natural log term during the collision of free electrons with H-atom and Pt-atom, respectively.
