Table 1 expression parameters are; P = station pressure, Po = standard pressure, ai = fitting coefficients, m = air mass correction for path length, u = absorber abundances, A = absorption coefficients, a = absorber/wavelength dependent, Bs = water vapor band, airmass, and pressure scaling factors, αi βi, = Ångstrom parameters, i = 1 for λ < 500 nm, i = 2 for λ ≥ 500 nm,* λ1: Reference wavelength (usually 1000 nm or 1 μm) Figures 16 and 17 show percent difference between SMARTS MODTRAN results and one of many comparisons of measured and SMARTS spectral data.

5 Completing the Loop: Fuel Cells The high-energy chemicals such as H2 that form in the reactions considered in the preceding reaction, can be recombined in fuel cells to extract the stored chemical energy as electricity. A fuel cell is an electrochemical device that converts the chemical energy in a fuel (such as hydrogen) and an oxidant (oxygen, pure or in air) directly to electricity, water, and heat. Fuel cells are classified according to the electrolyte that they use (Table 6). For automobile applications, the polymer-electrolytemembrane (PEM) type of fuel cell is the leading candidate for developing zeroemission vehicles.
