Determining Power Output of Natural Acids

This experiment tested different natural acids found in potatoes, limes, and tomatoes in multiple three factor (acidity, temperature of solution, and gauge of wire leads) Design of Experiments on their ability to produce electrical power (watts). Copper and zinc leads in each acid were connected to a multimeter which measured the voltage and current. The power was calculated by measuring the voltage and current of three natural acids, found in tomatoes, limes, and potatoes. Results show that the acidity of a solution greatly increased the power output.
