    B) The math to figure out the hydrogen generated has already...

    Do you have .pdf files of those schematics? Post 'em up if you do and I (for one) can take a look. Might not get to it today though.

    And for the record, there were two glaring errors in what I posted and I think both should be corrected. Since no one else is going to do it, I will.

    You're not listening. It only has to fill a small space at the top of the larger space. The flaw in your "scientific" math is you've screwed up the basic assumption of the volume. You keep assuming...
