WATER HYBRID SYSTEM, AN ALTERNATIVE TO PETROLEUM
Jakarta: Cars and motorcycle have the long-term effect of destroying the environment by depleting fossil fuel. On top of that, the emissions released from the combustion system of an automoile can also cause the greenhouse effect. Carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide are two greehouse gases that damage our earth’s atmosphere. They could cause certain vegetation to die off, the snow caps to melt, and the earth’s atmospheric temperature to increase.
Reducinmg the amount of these greenhouse gases will greatly help reduce these effects. That is why we ned an alternative for petroleum.
Researchers are currently working on environmentally friendly and inexhaustile energy resources: water.
They have created a water-hybrid combustion system that copnverst vehicles to use water as a source of primary fuel. The engine derives fuel from hydrogen and oxygen, generated by the electrolysis of water. The only y-product resulting from the hydrogen and oxygen components of combustion within the engine is water vapour. Therefore, emissions are cleaner, with fewer polluting particles, as reported by Jinali Parekh.
The technology existed back in 1805 when a Swiss inventor named Isaac de Rivaz made the firstt car powered by water. There has been significant development of the technology since then, but recently researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are working on the use of hydrogen from wateras an alternative fuel to drive car.
Kata ‘reducing’ memiliki makna yang sama dengan ‘decreasing’ yakni ‘mengurangi’ sehingga pilihan jawaban (D) adalah yang paling tepat. Pilihan jawaban (A) salah karena artinya ‘menjaga’, (B) salah karena artinya ‘mengizinkan’, (C) salah karena artinya ‘mengatur’, dan (E) salah karena artinya ‘mengubah’.
