an led light Why Do Citrus Fruits Conduct Electricity?

Citrus fruits are acidic and metal atoms give up electrons whenever any metal is in direct contact with acid.The water environment of the fruit imitates to some extent the conductive chemicals of the battery, and the electrons begin to flow through the circuit.When life gives you lemons, you can generate electricity from them for free.Electricity has become an essential part of our daily life.If we were forced to live an hour without it, we would become restless.This fact has forced us to think about alternative sources of power generation.Well...Another source is in your kitchen...Lemon or any other citrus.Any type of citrus fruit, whether it is lemon, orange or sweet lime, will generate electricity after properly connected in the complete circuit.In the fruit circuit, the fruit acts as a battery.The citric acid and water in the fruit act as an electrolyte so that the current passes through the circuit.In ordinary batteries, two metals are used, regardless of size, to produce electrons, and conductive chemicals simplify the flow of these electrons through the circuit.When the fruit acts as a battery, the acid and water contained in it acts as a conductive chemical.Citrus fruits like apples and potatoes and many other fruits and vegetables are good conductors of electricity.You can even use juice and vinegar as a viable conductor for electricity.Many small household items can be powered by citrus fruits.Hand-Hand-held Pen bulb, LED uses less power than normal bulb, and even calculator can use citrus fruit power supply.When dissolved in water, the acid is a good conductor of electricity, and when connected to the circuit, the acid becomes an electrolyte.If the same acid is used in a waterless form (dry/powder/crystal form), it does not conduct electricity.Therefore, it can be concluded that water is a "conductor" and acid is a "producer" of electrons ".When copper is in contact with the air, it forms BlackThere are colored copper oxide films on the surface.When you pierce the copper nail in the lemon, the hydrogen atom in the acid begins to react with the oxygen in the oxide to form water.This makes copper ions with positive electricity free of copper.The reaction rate of zinc metal to acid is higher than that of copper.It dissolves in acid to form zinc ions and 2 free electrons.These two electrons rush to copper ions with positive electricity and neutralize them.The whole process releases energy.Each time a charge of 1 Cullen is moved, the energy of 1 Joules is released.So it can be said that the battery produces 1 volt of current.The limitation of charge flow is the design of the interior of the fruit, which hinders the movement of ions.Another limitation is that, to a certain extent, when zinc constantly emits electrons, it generates more positive electricity, and copper constantly accepts electrons and becomes negative electricity.This reduces the voltage difference between the two and the current output.But if you wait for a while, the ions will redistribute again and the voltage will start to increase.Citrus fruits should not be misunderstood to generate electricity, they will not.They just supply power by helping complete the circuit.One or two fruits in the circuit produce a very weak current.But if you add a few of them to the circuit, you will be able to generate enough power to light the bulb.This setting is like more than onecell battery.Easy, safe and fun.Parents are advised to supervise when using metal nails.Take the fruit and roll a little on the table to make it juicy from inside.The skin should not be damaged.Now insert copper nails and zinc nails in the same fruit, but make sure they are at least 2-3 cm apart.They should not touch each other, nor should they puncture the fruit.About an inch of insulation around the wires should be removed so that they can wrap around the nails.You can fix the wires in place using tape or crocodile clips.Once you wrap the wire around the second nail, the light bulb will light up!You can use a multimeter to measure the current flowing through the circuit.In this experiment, when you use different quantities of fruit, you can measure how the size of the current changes.You can change the length of the wire and measure the size of the current again.You can change the fruit and constantly measure the change in the current size.Continue to be the champion of your science class, present the above experiments and explain why citrus fruits are energized.
