Potato electricity

Original price was: Rs.3,500.00.Current price is: Rs.2,000.00.


Actually, is not hard at all to determine how to make electricity with a potato. Potatoes are made up of the following elements:
• water
• starch
• sugars
• trace minerals (plenty of ions)
Since potatoes are mostly water and have lots of ions dissolved in them, they can be used as batteries quite easily. Ions are particles with an electric charge (positive or negative) associated to them. Technically speaking you could use almost any fruit the same way. The ions can now be used to generate electricity by using electrodes.
So how do we use this logic to generate electricity from potatoes?
We can try a classic potato electricity experiment to illustrate how it works
Essentially we want to turn the potato into a galvanic or voltaic cell. In this type of cell a chemical reaction takes place which results in electricity being produced.
