Soil Electrical Conductivity: Earthy Energy
Soil and energy don't go together, right? One seems natural and a bit on the messy side while the other is a mysterious force that powers everything from our toasters to our cars. What two things could be more different?
Well, science is all about testing what we think of the world. In this experiment, we'll discover if any type of soil can conduct, or carry, an electric current. Soil electrical conductivity? Perhaps soil and energy aren't such a bizarre pairing.
