How Do You Make Hydrogen into a Liquid?


Hydrogen is made into a liquid by putting hydrogen gas into a compressor and the air inside adjusted to the standard atmospheric pressure (101.325 kPa) and the temperature dropped to less than 423.2 degrees F, causing the hydrogen gas to change to a liquid which settles at the bottom. The container should be insulated to maintain the temperature as well as have the ability to retain pressure so as to keep the hydrogen in its liquid state. Liquid hydrogen is used in fuel cells for jet engines and in cryogenic labs.
