OXYGEN GENERATOR SYSTEM

OXYGEN GENERATOR SYSTEM

'Maintaining a permanent human presence on the International Space Station requires a well organized and precise life support system, a part of which is the Oxygen Generator System. Students will learn about how the OGS produces breathable oxygen for the crew by converting wastewater from the ISS into oxygen and hydrogen through the process of electrolysis. 

Students will

  • explain what is meant by the direction, form and strength of the overall pattern of a scatter plot;
  • write balanced equations for half reactions;
  • predict direction of oxidation-reduction reactions; and
  • determine mass and volume relationship with an emphasis on mole concepts.'

Links are provided for all necessary materials, including videos.
