Potato battery science project: investigate how to make batteries out of potatoes using zinc and copper electrodes, connect them in series and in parallel, and use them to power a buzzer and led. Citrus battery science fair project 1 by: seth kessel 2 my hypothesis is that the electrodes in a single citrus fruit will be an alternative way to power something like a light bulb i base my hypothesis on that. In conclusion, the battery with the most voltage and amps was duracell with 162 volts the lemon battery was the least amount of voltage with 200 volts if you are going to the store to buy a battery, duracell is the best one to buy.
Batteries are used world wide batteries provide power to electrical devices for an extended amount of time without the use of cords batteries work by creating a flow of electrons from one side to a battery to the other. The nails act as poles for the battery, one positive and one negative electrons travel from the positive pole to the negative pole via the light bulb wire (the conductor), generating enough electricity to light the bulb. Fruit battery abstract a fruit battery is a device used in experiments proposed in many science textbooks around the world it is made by inserting two different metallic objects, for example a galvanized nail and a copper coin, into an ion bridge (for example a lemon, a potato or paper soaked in salt water or acid. The first lemons that we tested using multiple fruit weighed 5 ounces, 55 ounces, 6 ounces, and 6 ounces respectively, giving them all an average of 56 ounces per fruit the amperage they yielded was 4 amps, giving them an average of 07 amps per ounce.
Results results conclusion aim to compare and record the electrical charges given off by certain fruits and to verify which fruit gives off the most electrical charge in a fruit battery. Moving the lemons using a tough exterior is a good solution to breakup this fruits interior and get the actual acidic mindset moving quicker make use of a chef's knife for making a pair of tiny slits, in addition to insert a single dollar then one paperclip in each and every lemon. Theorizing, hypothesizing, experimentation, and iterating toward a conclusion the way a real go watch the video and learn how to build a fruit battery. You can build a working battery from various materials, including lemons, tomatoes, potatoes, almost any fruit or vegetable up until now, batteries may have seemed mysterious, but now we are among the few that have a working knowledge of how and why they work. Abstract a fruit battery is a device used in experiments proposed in many science textbooks around the world it is made by inserting two different metallic objects, for example a galvanized nail and a copper coin, into an ion bridge (for example a lemon, a potato or paper soaked in salt water or acid.
The purpose of this experiment is to determine whether there is enough energy stored in a fruit or a vegetable to power an led light this experiment can be taken further to determine how long a fruit or vegetable can power an led for with the help of a few household items, a potato can be used to. Fruit battery power purpose to demonstrate how an electrical current can be generated using citrus fruits (such as lemons or limes) that is strong enough to power a small light bulb. By isabel tayag fruit battery experiment problem research hypothesis i based my hypothesis on the acidity of the 4 fruits i was testing an easy way to do this is by looking at their ph levels. To make this expirement even better you can get a light bulb and hook it up to the alligator clips and use the fruit as a light powered fruit battery another use for the fruit battery is placing a light bulb and a solar panel together and to get double the electricity to light a light bulb. Fruit battery experiment, travis v batteries store chemical energy and transform this energy into electricity this is how batteries make gadgets and electronic devices work, like mobile phones, mp3 players, flashlights, and a whole lot more.
With the fruit-power battery, the two metals are zinc and copper the zinc is in the galvanization on the nails, and the pennies are actually copper-plated zinc the acid comes from the citric acid inside each lemon. Conclusion factors that may have affected the outcomes of the research beside the materials used in the development of the lemon battery, the crocodile clips and. The lemon battery is a simple type of electrical battery that is commonly made for school science projects because it illustrates a battery's main components typically, a piece of zinc metal and a piece of copper metal are inserted into a lemon.
Does one particular fruit or vegetable outperform the others with what you learned about how batteries generate electricity, why do you think that one type of produce made a stronger battery. In this science fair project,construct batteriesfrom various fruits and testthem to see which one will producethe most electric current then, determine if it would be practical to use fruit as a natural source for generating electricity.
Conclusion the purpose of my electric fruits and vegetables experiment was to see which fruit or vegetable conducts the most energy my hypothesis was to determine i f a lemon is connected to copper and zinc anodes then will it produce the most energy than other fruits and vegetables. The lemon battery hypothesis states that a lemon is acidic enough to carry an electric charge and act as a battery to demonstrate that a lemon can carry an electric charge, it is necessary to perform an experiment. The archaic lemon battery: lemon with a copper and zinc electrode in it however, there are variables to test that are seldom explored in these experiments, we will vary the fruit or vegetable used, the distance between the two electrodes, and the surface area of each electrode.
