POTATO INTO BATTERY
To lessen the consume of electric charge
We insert copper and zinc electrodes in to the potato, close but not touching each other. We use Clip leads to connect our electrodes to the Multimeter to measure voltage between two electrodes or current passing through the multimeter. For this experiment we used a galvanized nail for our Zinc electrode.
It did go well and the potato did give voltage to the equipment (clock) However, the energy needed depends on the potato also the voltage is not permanent for the potatoe’s voltage also runs out in a time period.
d. Conclusions therefore potato is an effective source of voltage and it can lessen the consume of electric charge however it also depends in the potato.
The researchers would like to acknowledge with sincerest gratitude the following persons for the support they gave to them in the accomplishment of this investigatory project. Our classmates, who helped us whenever we are misguided and whenever we have difficulties. Mrs, who serves as our second mother, who keeps on supporting us and serving as our guardian in school especially at times that we are in the wrong track. Parents, whom we lean on at most times. Who gave us all of the supports they can give for us to be able to study in a better school. Who keeps on providing us everything we need. And most especially to our Father God from above, who gave us the knowledge and the ability to do our project and who gave us instinct to think and decide and to know what’s right or wrong.

Background of the study
Problem general objectives
Batteries generate electricity through a chemical reaction between two different electrodes and one electrolyte. Use of Copper and Zinc electrodes and Sulfuric acid as electrolyte is a proven method for this process.
