Making a Battery from Fruits/Vegetables By Ben Butcher Abstract Abstract
By Ben Butcher
I will then test each one by connecting them to a clock and record if each of them work or not and by checking their voltage with a voltmeter. The type of experiment that will be conducted will be a research and field test experiment. I will record the data by writing it down when I test each battery to see if it powers the simple digital clock.
From these sources, I learned that it is possible to make batteries out of lemons, potatoes, apples, oranges, and onions when you make them a certain way. This is because they, like batteries, have some form of acid in them that will charge a conductor and produce a small electric current. This electric current should be able to produce enough electricity to be about 1 volt.
The purpose of this experiment is to see if you can make a battery out of a lemon, potato, apple, orange, and onion with the right materials and see if any of them have enough power to power a simple digital clock.
If you make a battery out of a lemon, potato, orange, apple, and onion correctly using the right materials, then the batteries should each have enough power to make a simple digital clock work and will produce about one volt of energy.
8. Connect each of these objects to the simple battery-powered electrical device to see if they work or not.
9. Connect these objects to the voltmeter to see how much electricity they contain.
10. Make observations.
11. Analyze Results.
12. Make Conclusions.
I hope you enjoyed the presentation.
