1.2. Power supply for rail-free movement by using platinum catalytic engine
- The driving force of Biomolecular Rocket is catalytic engine of platinum. This catalytic engine became more powerful,, increasing the surface of platinum. Biomolecular Rocket had numerous platinum particles to increase the surface of platinum. In this experiment, we deposited chromium to 1 μm beads which are covered platinum and we make half platinum beads. Then, we observed a behavior of the beads in 3% H2O2 solution. From this experiment, we are able to investigate whether surface area of platinum was related to the speed.
