# Currents from the kitchen

Prediction: I predict that the lemon will do the best job at conducting electricity because it is an acidic fruit and that may play a big role in creating the best charge.

observation of the circuit set up:

I  noticed that in order for the circuit to be complete and work to its best ability it had to be closed in order to make the meter move. For my group it took a little longer to make it work

results:

orange= 3 v

apple= 2 v

grape= 5 v

lemon= 7 v

observations/ End result:

In conclusion the prediction i made was correct. The more acidic the fruit the more that they will conduct electricity. The acid in the lemon makes ions, when put you put it in with water or a solution (lemons have much water in them ) The ions from the acids are the same type as the ions in a electric current.

1. Yes, I enjoyed this lab because I was introduced to a new type of food that I have never had before.
2. I would add something to bring out the flavor or add flavor. To make it healthier I would add some sort of protein like chicken.
3. Once our food is deep fried in oils/fats it quickly becomes an unhealthy choice.

# Electricity Mind Map

1. How does electricity get from dams to our homes?
2. How fast does Energy travel?
3. Is electricity expensive?
4. What happens to the power lines internally to make the power goes out in buildings?
5. What would the average amount of electricity that families/homes would use in a day?
6. How many volts in a regular outlet plug?
