How do you light an LED using lemon battery?
Have you ever tried of lighting up an LED just by using few lemons. Here is an interesting science experiment to glow an LED by using the lemon battery. Follow our simple step by step tutorial and learn to power an LED with Lemons.
Lemon - 6 to 7
Zinc Coated Screw - 6 to 7
LED - 1
Copper Wire - 6
Steps To Follow
Step 1: Take a zinc coated screw and roll the copper wire on it.
Step 2: Press and insert the zinc coated screw inside a lemon.
Step 3: Take the end of the copper wire and connect it with the other lemon.
Step 4: Press the copper wire inside the other lemon. Insert the copper rolled screw inside the 2nd lemon too.
Step 5: Take a volt meter to measure the amount of voltage produced.
Step 6: Keep the test probes of the volt metre above the screws as we have shown below. You can see the power produced out of lemons.
Step 7: Now connect 5 to 6 lemons as we have done before.
Step 8: Take a LED. Keep the positive and negative diode end of the LED on the screws. You can find the LED is started to glow. Try this experiment and power your LED using the lemons.
