POTATO IN BATTERY
To lessen the consume of electrical charge
All of us insert copper and zinc electrodes in the potato, close but not touching each other. We all use Clip leads to hook up our electrodes to the Multimeter to evaluate voltage between two electrodes or current passing through the multimeter. With this experiment we all used a galvanized toe nail for each of our Zinc electrode. c. End result
It do go well plus the potato do give volt quality to the gear (clock) Yet , the energy necessary depends on the spud also the voltage is definitely not permanent for the potatoe's volt quality also runs out in a moment period. g. Conclusions
for that reason potato is an effective source of ac electricity and it can decrease the consume of electric charge however it likewise depends in the potato.
The researchers would like to recognize with sincerest gratitude the subsequent persons pertaining to the support they offered to them in the achievement of this investigatory project. Our classmates, who also helped all of us whenever we happen to be misguided and whenever we have got difficulties. Mrs, who serves as our second mother, who have keeps on supporting us and serving as the guardian in school especially at times that we will be in the wrong track. Father and mother, whom we all lean on at most times. Who have gave us all of the supports they can offer for us in order to study in a better university. Who keeps on providing us everything we need. And many especially to our Father Our god from above, who have gave us the knowledge as well as the ability to perform our task and who gave us instinct to consider and decide and to know what's correct or incorrect.

1 . Introduction
Background of the analyze
Problem standard objectives
Batteries generate electricity through a chemical reaction between two distinct electrodes and one electrolyte. Use of Copper and Zinc electrodes and Sulfuric acid as electrolyte is a proven method for this technique. We are questioning if we can use any other water as electrolyte? This provided us the thought of using a potato as electrolyte. After all a fresh potato provides a lot of juice that may provide our purpose as electrolyte. Problem:
Can Potato be applied to generate electricity?
Potato juice contains many water soluble chemical substances that may create a chemical reaction with one or both of our electrodes. So we might get some electrical energy from that. �
Just for this experiment we all use:
A brand new potato
A Digital or Analog Multimeter to measure Volts or Current of made electricity. Alligator clips/ Qualified prospects
We all insert copper and zinc electrodes in to the potato, close but not touching each other. All of us use Cut leads to connect our electrodes to the Multimeter to evaluate voltage among two electrodes or current passing through the multimeter. In this experiment we removed the shell of any broken Long battery life for the Zinc electrode. (Make certain to test your multimeter by connecting its Great and Negative wires to each other that should show no current and no voltage). �
Record And Examine Data:
A digital multimeter demonstrated 1 . two volts involving the electrodes, nevertheless the analog multimeter showed a much smaller benefit. In other words although the voltage among electrodes can be 1 . a couple of Volts, the speed of creation of electricity is not really high enough to get an analog multimeter showing the exact volts. (Analog multimeter gets the power from your potato to show the volts, but digital Multimeter gets its electrical power from an internal battery and does not consume the electricity created by our potato, that is why that shows a larger and more exact value). We repeated this kind of experiment with various other fruits and everything resulted practically the same. In all of the cases the produced voltage is among 1 and 1 . 5 volts, in addition to all instances they do not generate enough current to...
