Solution :-

Metallic hydrides are hydrogen deficient. They don’t follow the law of constant composition.

It has been established that in the hydrides of Pd, Ac, Ni, and Ce, hydrogen occupies the interstitial position in lattices which allow further absorption of hydrogen on these metals.

Metals like Pt and Pd have the capacity to accommodate a large volume of hydrogen. Hence, metallic hydrides serve as a source of energy and used for the storage of hydrogen.
