I got electricity out of Citrus paradisis. lemons.
calcium hydroxides. and bananas. It took me about an hr or two to acquire this experiment but to acquire all the typewriting and to adorn my board it will likely take me about 2 hours.I have besides found out that certain fruits contain substances such as ascorbic acid.
citric acid. and NADH.The fruit with the citric acid is the type of fruit I used. citric acid seemed to bring forth a batch of electricity but non plenty to illume a light bulb.in order to power a light bulb you will necessitate both electromotive force and current. When connect fruit in analogue.
it gives you a higher current. Connect the fruit in series agreement it increase the electromotive force.Voltaic Battery Test ResultsGrapefruit1. . 10 Vs2. .

Through my experiment I have found out that a lemon produces the most sum of electricity ( . 40 Vs ) .
The banana and lime both had 25 Vs. The fruit with the least sum of electricity was the Citrus paradisi ( . 10 Vs ) . When I finished my experiment I besides found out that none of the fruits could really illume a light bulb.If I did this undertaking once more I would utilize an LED visible radiation. clock. or reckoner alternatively of a light bulb. Another thing I could seek would be to compare veggies to fruits.
Fruit produces a little sum if current. non plenty to illume up a light bulb. even with multiple fruits attached together. Vegetables. particularly murphies.
may hold higher current than fruit.Procedure1. I inserted the Cu and steel home base into each fruit so I connected caputs to each and measured the electromotive force of each fruit.2. I recorded the information.3.
I connected alligator cartridge holders to the light bulb. tested all fruits.4. I recorded the consequences of how long the bulb stays lit.5. If the bulb does non light up we will link more fruits together to bring forth more electricity.6.
Record all the informations.
