Potatoes are the ingredients which are most sustainable food known to men. We can do everything to them, mash it, boil it, roast it and scallop it. You can eat potatoes with meat, ketchup, cheese and different spices.
In this post we are going to present you the potatoes rediscovered
Anywhere you get to eat you will find tomatoes. They are cheap and you can keep it for several months before they got rot. Being the humble vegetable
Energy from the spud
It was made a research which tested the potatoes lighting, telecommunication and information transfer electrically.
To sum it all up, it’s like a battery, but tastier, more durable, and 50 times cheaper than the retail 1.5 V AA batteries. Plus it is a lot more environmental-friendly.
The researchers found that boiling the potato improved the generation of the energy ten times more than a raw spud. The scientists express how they hope that their discovery can solve the low power energy lacking in poorer areas of the world that are without access to electrical infrastructure.
Rabinovitch started with placing copper cathode and a zinc anode which linked them with a wire.
We need to make the thinks clear like a crystal because you need to know that the potatoes are not electrical source by itself.
Rabinovitch also devised a potato battery kit that includes two metal electrodes and alligator clips. Its design enables a newly boiled potato quarter to easily replace the dried up processor. The alligator clips transport the electrical current to the electrodes, and to the positive and negative input points of the lightbulb.
DIY potato battery
In addition we are going to present you the recipe for making this awesome thing.
The things which you will need:
- 1 zinc nail
- 1 copper nail or 1 penny
- 1 potato
- 1 wire
Now we are going to present you the method:
Stick the nails on opposite sides of the potato. If you are using a penny, you may need to cut out a penny-sized hole to be able to place the coin halfway into the potato.
- Attach the clips (or wrap around one end of the wire) onto each nail. If you are using a penny, wrap the wire around the coinbefore inserting it into the potato.
- Repeat this process to create moreenergy! Connect the potatoes by attaching one end of the wire to a zinc nail and the other end to the copper on the next potato, and continue this until all the studs are linked.
- Power up! Try this with a light bulb or another appliance for environment-friendly energy source!
This is all you need to do and you will have the electricity with potatoes, so simple!
