Currents from the kitchen

Prediction. My prediction is that the citrus fruits like lemons and oranges will generate a higher.

Why? I believe this because the citrus fruits are more acidic than other fruits, and the electrons flow through the acid


Grape: The grape had 2.5 volts and couldn’t turn on the light

Apple: The apple had 1.5 Volts and couldn’t turn on the light

Lemon: The lemon had 3 volts and couldn’t turn on the light.



Questions and conclusions.

My prediction was correct the lemon did produce more energy.

1. What kind of circuit will produce electron flow in your fruit cell? Series circuit 

2.If your bulb doesn’t glow, how can you find out if electrons are flowing? Use a voltmeter

3.If your bulb doesn’t glow, why not? Because their probably isn’t enough electrons flowing or the circuit isn’t done correctly

4.How can we modify our experiment to improve our results? Use bigger pieces of fruit and acidic fruits and use multiple fruits

5. What is causing the electrons to flow in this experiment? The electrolytes and acid.

6. How can I use this in my everyday life? You can eat half an apple and then use it to create power and theoretically saving power
