A fuel cell is designed to use methane and oxygen in a similar manner to H2/O2 fuel cell. If the electrolyte is acidic, determine the electrode reactions.

I suspect you forgot to copy the question number and the mark scheme.

Do you think the teacher just wanted you to post the question on the net or do you think they wanted you to think about it?

EvilFrog, what can the electrode reactions possibly be?
What's being oxidised and reduced here, oxygen or methane?
Can methane even be reduced?
