Okay, serious question: EXACTLY how is water being used as a fuel with these "H20 cars" or the like?
H20 is generally the end-result of certain types of fires/combustion, or put another way the product of a redox reaction. If water is "broken apart"
and ignited in the same fashion that it was initially created (by igniting the hydrogen), it's physically impossible for the energy gained through the
ignition process to exceed the energy expended during the process of "breaking the H20 apart" (and NUMEROUS tests have proven this). The only way for
H20 to be used as a fuel is if another material is being introduced as a reducing agent, or (much less likely) to be introduced as an oxidizing agent,
or if a method has been developed to create a self-propelling chain reaction to "break apart" H20 (which seems unlikely, seeing how stable and
abundant H20 appears). So, which is it, and how EXACTLY do these fabled "H20 cars" work? Specifically, what is the reducing agent or oxidizing agent
being introduced to use H20 as a fuel, or what EXACTLY is the process by which H20 "breaks apart" in a self-propelling chain reaction?
PS: H20 isn't used as a fuel in a steam engine, but rather it's used to create mechanical energy when it's converted in to a gaseous form in a
confined space. It's more like how water is used to drive turbines in damns, and really isn't anything like how oil is burned to drive a combustion
engine, nor is it anything like how wood is burned to produce heat. The ONLY fuel in a steam engine is whatever is being burned (the redox process),
which is usually wood or coal, which in turn generates heat that converts water from its liquid form to its gaseous form.
